Just like life, golf will always present us with never-ending challenges with many highs and lows.

SADGA (the South African Disabled Golf Association) was incorporated as a Section 21 Company in July 2004.

We pride ourselves on being a unique community that helps physically and sensory disabled players to practice one of golf’s most precious lessons:  Your enjoyment and happiness should not be contingent upon perfecting your golf swing or winning.  The process, however, can be enjoyed regardless of the outcome and produce a strong, courageous person that can effectively handle adversity and face any challenge that comes before you.

1 - Encourage every South African with a permanent disability to play golf.

2 - Promote golf as a viable form of rehabilitation and recreation for the disabled.

3 - Bring together able and disabled golfers to share their love for the game, in the spirit of friendship and competition.

4 - Create public awareness of challenges facing disabled golfers, and to highlight their achievements.

The SAGDB was founded in 1999 by South African businessman and SAGDB patron Johann Rupert.

Rupert’s vision was to create a grass-roots golf development program that could grow the sport, develop golf skills into tangible benefits for graduate, and eventually produce champion golfers.

The SAGDB is not only about golf; it’s about giving children from all walks of life the skills to develop into positive role models in their communities through the discipline and values they learn through the game and to empower them to become economically independent through these skills.

The SAGDB (South African Golf Development Board) operates in 14 areas across South Africa.  It enjoys support and endorsement of the Department of Sports and Recreation, the R&A, GolfRSA, the Sunshine Tour, the Professional Golfers Association of South Africa, Remgro and all other official South African golf bodies.

In the last 21 years, more than 35 000 children have come through the SAGDB program, thanks to the devoted staff, the backing of dedicated sponsors and the unwavering support of South Africa’s 14 golf unions.

The South African Golf Development Board (SAGDB) is a non–profit organisation with section 18a donations tax exemption status.  Since its formation in 1999, the SAGDB has grown a network of coaches and officials who work across the country to develop the game in the cities and the most remote areas.
