SADGA provides clinics throughout South Africa for disadvantaged, disabled youngsters introducing them to golf and the job opportunities within the industry. Regional Days are held in five Regional centres on a monthly basis encouraging disabled golfers to compete against able-bodied, the only difference between them being their golf handicap.
