Ufford Park Disabled British Open 2018 gross prize winner, Ashley Harris and nett prize winner, Brad Smith

 

Ufford Park Woodbridge Hotel, Golf and Spa hosted its fifth Disabled British Open in September, which saw 25 golfers take to the course as part of the annual two-day championship.

The Disabled British Open is open to participants from across the globe with a recognised disability or impairment. This includes amputees and wheelchair golfers as well as those with learning, hearing or visual impairments.

Handicaps of the competitors range from three to 28 and seven of the participants were playing off of single figures.

The golfers were once again impressed by the facilities at Ufford Park. The course, hotel, access and catering facilities are all well suited for people with disabilities, with the hotel recently investing in a wheelchair accessible picnic table on the terrace of The Park Bar and Restaurant.

Members from the club were also happy to get involved in the event, volunteering as caddies, ball spotters and raking bunkers.

The winner of the gross prize this year was Ashley Harris, with Brad Smith picking up the nett award.

Prizes for the Disabled British Open are awarded to the overall gross and nett winners, as well as additional prizes for both the different disability groups and handicap ranges.
