Welcome to
World Deaf Golf Federation

To Promoting Deaf Golfers in the world.

The World Deaf Golf Federation (WDGF) is a non-profit organisation aiming to promote the sport of golf among deaf and hard of hearing golfers in the world and to oversee the World Deaf Golf Championships. The biennial World Deaf Golf Championships is awarded to and hosted by a member country with the support of WDGF members. Deaf Golf Ireland (DGI) was awarded the winning bid of WDGC 2018 at the WDGF General Meeting in 2014.

Brief History

The ICSD (International Committee of Sports for the Deaf) accepted the WDGF’s proposal to be added to the 2017 Deaflympics program. The original proposal was submitted for the 2013 ICSD Congress – it was approved by the ICSD Executive Board in 2015. At the WDGC 2016 Closing Ceremony, ICSD Vice President David Lanesman announced that the golf event is officially a medal sport.
