Not only does golf get you moving, it’s also a great way to get your brain ticking and socialise. And chances are, if you're a member of a golf club you know someone living with Parkinson's.
You can get all the benefits of golf while raising money to fund Parkinson’s research breakthroughs, support the community and drive forward the search for a cure. And we'll send you free materials, like Parkinson’s UK golf tees, caps and pencils, to make sure your fundraiser stands out from the crowd.
Par for Parkinson's: play golf, club together, support Parkinson's UK!

Making golf Parkinson’s friendly
We want to make golf more accessible for people living with Parkinson’s. We’ve worked with Golf England to put together some advice so that everyone can join in and play comfortably on the course.
1. Complete a self-guided accessibility audit, available through Sport England and the Activity Alliance. Download this resource on the Activity Alliance website.
2. Consider the speed of play in all rounds and lessons. People with Parkinson's may need to pause to take medication or take extra rest breaks and for some, slowness and stiffness may impact their play.
3. Are your staff, committees and volunteers suitably Parkinson's aware? If not, visit our information about symptoms of the condition.
