Dementia Golf Day won by the High Five Team

20151120_075045

Imagine your team of four golfers included one player with dementia and another with Parkinson’s disease who was told he would never play golf again.

How would you rate your chances of winning in a nine hole “Texas Scramble” competition against five other teams, all regular golfers with official handicaps?

You probably would expect to enjoy your round and try your best without winning.

Well, here’s a thing …..  The High Five Team, competing at Lincoln Golf Centre for the first ever Golf Days Out trophy, won by 2 clear points!!!! Here’s the winning card, featuring THREE BIRDIES in nine holes.

It’s amazing what you can achieve living with dementia, given the right help and support from compassionate people.

    1. Thanks Andrene. The more we can engage stakeholders through compelling – real life stories, the sooner we’ll get them to understand and support the social entrepreneurs out there who are contributing so much to local communities.
      Hope all is going well with your great venture. Take care. Anthony
