A Group of Oxfordshire children with special needs, who learned golf at a pioneering Feel Inspired academy, are being offered a bespoke golf club membership.
The youngsters have spent the last two years learning golf at a Feel Inspired academy, run for boys and girls with special needs by the BB&O Golf Partnership, which works to grow the game in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire.
Now, they’re being offered an especially created Feel Inspired membership at Waterstock Golf Club, near Oxford, where they’ve attended academy sessions.
It’s being funded for the first year by a donation made by the One Arm Golfing Society to the BB&O Partnership.
John Low, the chairman of the BB&O Golf Partnership said: “This is a fantastic step forward and we look forward to the boys and girls enjoying the benefits of becoming members of Waterstock Golf Club.
“We really appreciate the support of The One Arm Golfing Society and Waterstock Golf Club.
“When we embarked on the Feel Inspired programme our aim was to give our academy players the opportunity to learn the game of golf.
“Our first group of nine students who have completed the two years’ academy coaching course have developed not only their golfing skills but have received many benefits in helping their mobility, self-confidence and developing friendships within the group.”
The BB&O Golf Partnership programme has expanded and is now coaching 60 boys and girls at Feel Inspired academies in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
