GOLF BRIDGES GAPS

On the occasion of the 800th birthday of the city of Bielefeld an inclusive golf tournament for participants from across Germany was held at the Bielefeld Golf Club (BGC) on 26 September 2014. 70 golfers, with and without disabilities, participated in the event. The tournament was carried out by mixed flights.

The WDR TV station presented a report of the event:

Film maker Eike Swoboda followed the golf team with his camera during the national games of the “Special Olympics” in June 2010 in Bremen, Germany. His 7-minute film entitled “Good Handicap” does not require many words to illustrate the powerful strokes of the Bielefeld team.
