We show results that are measurable.
Since the inception of our Junior Golf program in 1992, over 5,000 children and adults
have been introduced to the joys and social interactions around blind and vision-impaired golf.




Blind Golf Tournaments are the peak of achievement for blind and vision-impaired golfers.
When a blind or vision-impaired person is introduced to competitive golf, labels and barriers disappear.
Goals are attained. Accomplishments are earned.




Our members’ stories are what fuel the USBGA. They represent how a devastating event can be turned
into an inspiration for themselves and others who have encountered these same events in their own lives. The opportunity to play golf after vision loss is life changing.




Would you like to make a difference in the lives of the blind and visually-impaired? There are many ways that you can support the mission of the USBGA and help us inspire, instruct and challenge blind youth and adults through the game of golf.





The USBGA relies on individual and corporate support. Your gift in any amount will impact the spirits and capabilities of the blind and sighted alike.

Leave a Lasting Legacy

Planned Giving


Why leave a legacy or bequest to the United States Blind Golf Association (USBGA)?

Estate planning that includes bequests or legacy gifts provides crucial long-term funding that allows USBGA to plan for the future and will allow us to continue to offer golfing opportunities for individuals who are blind or visually impaired. A legacy gift means your gift priorities during your lifetime continue after your death. We understand that leaving a legacy or bequest is an amazing act of commitment and that we have a big responsibility to the people who chose to support our mission and goals in this way. We take it very seriously.

By remembering USBGA in your will, you can play a significant role in helping the next generation who will face vision challenges, live with dignity and independence because we will be there to provide the opportunity for them to continue to play the wonderful game of golf.

What does a Legacy gift provide?

  • The opportunity for adults to play competitive golf.
  • The opportunity to introduce blind and visually impaired children to the game of golf.

Recent changes in tax laws make it essential that you indicate your priorities in a will and work out the best vehicles to do that with a planner.  Here are some ways you may wish to participate:

  • Bequest in your will
  • Designate the USBGA as a beneficiary in your life insurance, IRA, annuity or other retirement plan
  • A stock gift
  • One of many options is to continue to provide for heirs and still leave a charitable gift

These options need to be discussed with your financial planner or attorney. Potential wording for a (USBGA) bequest is:

“I hereby give, devise and bequeath to the United States Blind Golf Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, located at, ______ with tax number______ the sum of $ __________ or _______ % of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate for its general purposes (or describe a specific purpose).”


If you have any questions about planned gifts we recommend you speak with an attorney or a financial planner.

All donations may be addressed to the United States Blind Golf Association (USBGA).  Donations may be directed to:

Thank you!

Since its humble beginning over 70 years ago after WWII ended, the United States Blind Golf Association’s mission is to advance and increase public awareness of golf among the blind and vision-impaired. The USBGA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization led by a volunteer Board of Directors. All tournaments and associated events are organized, funded and operated solely by the efforts of USBGA members and partners. We are proud to say that 100% of all funds received are used to support USBGA junior golf clinics and programs, tournaments and member recruitment.

To continue to provide the same quality of services to the blind and vision-impaired, we will need to engage businesses and non-profit organizations to assist as we have in the past, but a majority of support will increasingly come from individuals.

The benefits of sponsoring USBGA tournaments and programs include recognition and visibility at all events and activities on the official USBGA website, through USBGA communications including a quarterly newsletter and local, regional and national media coverage. Even customized sponsorships can be designed to achieve an organization's marketing, PR and community involvement objectives.

If you would like to become a sponsor for the USBGA, please contact us at info@usblindgolf.com and someone will be happy to assist you.

$3,000 in support of a blind golfer A excerpt of the letter from the family to our President on 8/31/19:

On behalf of our family, I wish to thank you for letting us know the $3,000 (plus) was donated in my husband's name.

Bob loved golf and would play anytime, anywhere, with anybody! He was a member of the Beacon Hill Country Club when he lost his sight to CRVO
(Central Retinal Vein Occlusion) in both eyes.  The macular was damaged, but he had peripheral vision to aid him.  As long as someone could follow his golf ball and drive the cart, he could hit the ball.  He would pace off his putts. 

Our son and I took him to him to many of the 978 different golf courses he played in his lifetime. Your organization was a life saver for him when he was declared legally blind.  He realized that there were special rules (especially for sand traps) that aided him.  As a result, he adjusted quite well. 

We think his strong will and determination carried him over the last 20 years of blindness. 

Good luck to your organization and may you aid many more blind golfers.

The family wishes to remain anonymous.
