The Rowan County Parks and Recreation Department’s Therapeutic Recreation Division is proud to sponsor its 35th Annual Statewide Visually Impaired Miniature Golf Tournament. The tournament will be held Saturday, March 25th on our two ADA compliant miniature courses at Dan Nicholas Park. The tournament will begin at 10:00 am. Each participant will shoot 18 holes of golf.
We expect approximately 80 golfers and 70 volunteers from across North Carolina at this year’s tournament. Volunteers will work as sighted guides to assist the participants with lining up their putts, describing the course, and pointing out obstacles.
Following the tournament and lunch there will be an awards ceremony. Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each sight division as well as for the most holes-in-one in each division. Team trophies will be awarded to the top 2 counties with at least 2 VIPs playing.
Be sure to join us Saturday, March 25th for this fun filled day. Registration packets can be found at the link below. Registration for both participants and volunteers close Friday, March 3rd at 5pm. The entry fee is $5.00 per person. For more information contact the Therapeutic Recreation Division at 704-216-7780.
