The manager of Lo Romero golf is all heart when it comes to disabled golfers. Jaime Ibáñez always does everything he can for people with disabilities.
Mª J. PEÑAS / ALICANTE. So “taking advantage of the partial closure of the golf course for hollow tining and the absence of players, this event was organised for a day when all the holes would be available for adaptation to the needs of disabled players,” explained Ibañez when asked about a day of golf involving 23 young people belonging to the Aidemar centres (non-profit association of families with children with some type of disability) from several locations close to the golf course.
Ibañez continued by explaining: “This choice of dates and careful planning meant that we hardly interrupted the daily activities and operation of the facilities, while offering people with disabilities the opportunity to play on a real golf course”. The planned activity consisted of a golf tournament to take place on May, 27 with each group (3-4 people) supervised by a monitor and a golf teacher.
The match started at 10.30 and ended at around 12.00. After the shots were counted, the prizes were handed out by Ibañez, who told the attendees that he was getting married in October and that the money he received as wedding gifts would be donated to them, and that these extra funds could be used to send more players to the Spanish Golf Championships for the mentally disabled”.
The next event on the golf course will be the 3rd Open Golf Junior, will be on June, 21.
