Following on from a previous news article that explained the importance of the Blind Golf Association established in Fuerteventura, and the encouragement given to blind people to participate in playing golf with guides, the association this week reports some good news.
After a long period of completing the required paperwork for the Canary Islands Government, the Association has now gained formal registration. They report to us that all is now signed and stamped.
The next stage of becoming formally recognised is to apply for funding from the local government of Fuerteventura, so that members can participate in various golf tournaments, such as the World Championships in Italy.
