As soon as I walked into the clubroom I realised that we were all in the same boat

Doug Golding is currently Vice President of the Western Australian Blind Golf Association.  However, this has not always been the case.  Doug had in fact only been an occasional golfer before he lost his sight to Macular Degeneration in middle age. He was encouraged to become involved with blind golf by his wife Lynne.  Doug was reluctant to try blind golf at first but Lynne was able to talk him into giving it a go.

“As soon as I walked into the clubroom I realised that we were all in the same boat. You couldn’t have made a fool of yourself if you’d wanted to!” says Doug. From then on he has become more and more involved in blind golf and has made a strong group of golfing friends.  Doug enjoys tournaments with a highlight being a trip to England to play the British Open in 2010.
