Minigolf evening for handicapped children in Leonding

Minigolf evening for handicapped children in Leonding

14 handicapped children, most of them in wheelchair, were invited to test their minigolf skills at the eternite course of BGV Leonding, Austria, on 17 May 2009. With friends and family members included, the number of guests was some 50 people.

Many of the visitors had never played minigolf before. But soon they noticed that this game is not so difficult to play, and great fun. Some of the children possibly found a new hobby for themselves.

Felt courses and some lanes of the beton course require too much force for most wheelchair users, but eternite and some adventure golf courses are quite easy to play for wheelchair users. (However, the Net lane of eternite requires too much force for most wheelchair users.)

Wheelchair users need an extra wide putter angle to comfortably play minigolf, because they are sitting in the low chair. Some American companies and public minigolf courses offer putters with an extra wide angle for wheelchair users. Also the 3D putter can be adjusted for wheelchair users.
