England Deaf Golf



England Deaf Golf (EDG) (formerly English Deaf Golf Association (EDGA)), founded in 1983, is the governing body for deaf and hard of hearing (HoH) golfers in England as recognised by UK Deaf Sport, World Deaf Golf Federation and England Golf.

The EDG is one of the oldest National Deaf Golf governing body in the world and was also one of the original member countries of the World Deaf Golf Federation (WDGF) in the early 1990s.

The EDG is part of UK Deaf Sport which is a registered charity aiming to encourage Deaf people to participate, to enjoy and to excel at sport.

The EDG organises national events for players of all abilities and is responsible for selecting players on merit to play for England Deaf Golf Team participating in international events such as World Deaf Golf Championships. 

The long term aim of the EDG is to work with partners to create a world-class system of golf for Deaf and Hard of hearing people in England, regardless of their communication needs. Increasing participation, equal opportunities for all, sustainable systems and high performance.
