Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

Golf in an Electric Standing Wheelchair

2 Jul 2013I have been seeing a few pictures on Google with guys playing golf in standing wheelchairs and I thought it may be interesting to follow the link and see what the stories are about.

It so happens that there is an organisation called ‘Just for Smiles’ that looks at helping people with disabilities participate in sport.

The article that shows Guillaume and Quentin playing golf can be viewed here: ' target='_blank'>http://www.gorillagolfblog.com/events/golf-is-for-everyone-guillaume-and-quentin-first-members-of-the-g-team/' target='_blank'>http://www.gorillagolfblog.com/events/golf-is-for-everyone-guillaume-and-quentin-first-members-of-the-g-team/ TARGET=new>' target='_blank'>http://www.gorillagolfblog.com/events/golf-is-for-everyone-guillaume-and-quentin-first-members-of-the-g-team/' target='_blank'>http://www.gorillagolfblog.com/events/golf-is-for-everyone-guillaume-and-quentin-first-members-of-the-g-team/

I can just imagine the great accomplishment these two guys felt as they hit golf balls around. The elation of being in a standing position as they swung their golf clubs and the sensation and pleasure of being out in the open air travelling around the golf course.
