New Zealand Golf Special Olympics On Course Session

We just had our first NZ Golf Special Olympics On Course Session on the 19th of June.

This is a movement from the NZ Golf via the All Abilities programme they have initiated couple of years ago. Being disrupted by various Covid lockdowns in Auckland it was wonderful to see the crew turning up at Redwood for the first time and enjoying the course. We had Jayden leading the group and showing them round, it was great to see smiles on everyone's faces.

One of the members of the Specialy Olympics said, "This is the best turn out and the most amount of support the hosting golf club has shown to us."

We will be continuing to support All Abilities and Special Olympics through various ways, please keep an eye out for more events and notices.

Sue Child, is our All Abilities Manager, so if you would like to participate on these events please let her know.

On a side note, Jayden Baek, our junior member will be going for his National Team Trials to represent New Zealand in Berlin, Germany next year.

Thanks to all the supporters and volunteers that came out to help, even through the crisp temperature towards the end.
