THE Disabled Golf Society returned to Cumberwell Park for the second year.
The event for players, which include amputees, stroke victims, he partially-sighted and deaf, was cancelled earlier in the summer due to bad weather.
The 14 golfers from all over the country had to battle frequent rain shower.
National events co-ordinator Graeme Robertson, who has MS, said: “We had a really great day .
“I know what a difference playing golf has made to my life, the therapeutic benefits are incredible. Our aim is to enable more disabled people to play golf.”
DGS is a not-for-profit organisation, which offers free membership with event costs being kept low.
The group is always keen to hear from potential new members or sponsors.
