Unified Golf

Special Olympics Iowa Unified Golf pairs individuals with intellectual disabilities with Unified partners (golfers without intellectual disabilities) to compete in a team environment. Unified Sports are crucial to our mission as they promote inclusion and friendship for all.

Several skill levels are offered to meet the skill level of any athlete:

  • 9-hole: Pro (knows the game and skills for a full golf game)
  • 6-hole: Intermediate (knows the basics of golf but still improving skills)
  • 3-hole: Beginner (just learning the game of golf)

There is no charge to participate.  Lunch and water will be provided along with a tournament t-shirt and awards at the end of play.

Unified Golf events are held in:

  • Sioux City
  • Cedar Rapids
  • Davenport
  • Dubuque
  • Granger
  • Muscatine
  • Spencer
  • Vinton
