What Is Golf?

Golf provides Special Olympics Illinois athletes the opportunity to develop their golf skills by participating in three competitions that include individual skills, three-hole and six-hole. Golfers who have the ability to put all of the skills together can participate in nine-hole competition. Unified golf allows for those with and without intellectual disabilities to form teams in the nine-hole competition.

As in all Special Olympics Illinois sports, athletes are grouped into competition divisions according to ability level, age and gender when appropriate.

Athletes in Illinois who participate in golf compete locally at region qualifying events. Athletes are then eligible to advance to state championships at the State Golf Tournament held in Decatur each September.
