COVID Procedures

All participants should self-screen prior to arriving at this event and should remain home if feeling unwell or displaying coronavirus symptoms.

Vaccination is not required to attend in person events.

SOILL will have hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes/spray and other cleaning/sanitizing products on-site.

Please check with your Region staff on the status of spectators attending competitions.  The decision on allowing spectators is based on the facility being used for the competition, the rules they have and the amount of people above the number of registered athletes and coaches they can safely accommodate. It is very important you relay to all parents and guardians if spectators will be allowed at this competition.

Special Olympics Illinois is committed to providing the best athlete, volunteer, coach and supporter environment possible.  While we are excited to resume in-person events, the health and well-being of our constituents remains our top priority.  All of our in person events follow the COVID-19 recommended IDPH and CDC guidelines. 

Please review the COVID High-Risk fact sheet for more information:


What Is Golf?

Golf provides Special Olympics athletes the opportunity to develop their golf skills by participating in Individual Skills Competition, 3-Hole and 6-hole competitions. Golfers who have the ability to put all of the skills together can participate in 9-hole competition. Unified golf allows for athletes and their non-disabled peers to form teams in 9-hole competition.

As in all Special Olympics 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 Outdoor Sports Festival held in Decatur in September.

Golf Events Offered in Illinois


  • 9-hole competition


  • 9-hole aggregate team play


  • 3-hole, 6-hole or 9-hole competition
    • Individual Skills Competition (Short & Long Putt, Chip Shot, Pitch Shot, Iron & Wood Shot

Competition Information

If you are assigned to the front nine you only play the front nine.  If you are assigned on the back nine you only play the back nine.  For example if you start at five after you after you play hole nine you’ll then go to hole one.

Please make sure athletes are dressed appropriately for competition and the weather.  Absolutely no jeans or jean shorts are allowed.  Jewelry is also not permitted.  Competitors wearing golf shoes MUST have soft spikes.

All competitors MUST walk the course.  Golf Carts will be available to help with equipment ONLY.  Any Athlete/Partner riding in a cart (without approval granted at the entry deadline) will be disqualified.

Athletes and Unified Partners must tee-up their own ball.

A maximum stroke on any hole will be 11.  The ball must go in the hole on the 10th stroke, or the athlete must pick up their ball and move to the next hole.  See rule below

Golf 10x Scoring. If a 10th stroke is played without holing the shot, the player shall record a score of 10x and proceed to the next hole.  In order to differentiate from a participant who completes the hole on their 10th stroke, a 10x will be counted as an “11” on the total scorecard (10 strokes + 1 penalty). This rule applies in unified scoring as well where an athlete’s score is added to the unified partners score to get a total.

Competitors in unified competition receiving a 10x on every hole at the Region Qualifier will receive a participation ribbon with no advancement.

The use of any device for the purpose of gauging or measuring distance or conditions that might affect their play is prohibited and will result in disqualification.

The form of play will be aggregate.  The players will play their own ball on each hole.
