Welcome to the United States Blind Golf Association’s web site. Spend some time checking out our links and you will quickly learn why our motto is: “You don’t have to see it … to tee it!”
The association’s name states blind golf but we welcome all golfers with sight loss, men and women, youngsters or seniors. Whether you are blind or visually impaired the USBGA offers regional, national, and even international tournaments for those who enjoy competing.
Prospective new members are directed to the application and sight classification links.
DVDs are available upon request. One is about the organization, the other is on how to play and coach blind golf. Our members play golf according to the USGA/ R&A Rules of Golf with the approved exception of allowing the club to be grounded in a hazard and the use of a coach.
Support for the association and its members comes in many forms but none more important than the people that assist us in playing the game - the coach. Coaches are the reason blind golf is referred to as: “The ultimate team sport.”
Communities benefit immensely who are involved or host USBGA tournaments. The greatest reward at these events is seen through the smiles of sight impaired children who learn in blind golf clinics that they too can participate in the game of golf.
