The Special Olympics Washington golf program is centered on two educational phases designed to encompass all skill levels: learning to swing a golf club and learning to play the game. Golf is an increasingly popular sport that offers training and competition for athletes of all levels. Included in the state’s programming is an emphasis on individual skills, as well as high level play on golf courses.

Golf made its debut at the 1995 Special Olympics World Summer Games in New Haven, Connecticut. Special Olympics Washington proudly sent golfer Jordan Broderson to the 2015 World Games in L.A.
