In April (2009) we initiated a meeting with the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) in Bonn to talk about golf for people with physical limitations in relation to the possibility that golf may be Olympic in 2016. The decision will be taken by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in October 2009. If that is the case, the IPC has their own criteria to accept golf also as a paralympic sport. EDGA intends to promote golf as a Paralympic Sport and intends to act as the international association for golf in the Paralympic Games.
Roberto Caja, President of EDGA, Xavier Gonzalez, CEO of IPC, Pieter van Duijn,
Secretary-treasurer of EDGA and David Grevemberg, Executive Director Sport & IF Relations.
