2021 Conquistador ParaGolf Championships
April 20, 2021 - April 22, 2021$275
In the last year, we’ve seen all regular and adaptive sports events either postponed or in a some cases, cancelled. We believe that these unfortunate events have provided us with the perfect opportunity to make a mark on Adaptive Golf and to establish Tucson as the new epicenter of youth, collegiate, and competitive Adaptive Golf.
While there are national championships and opens in virtually every disability category, there are no true “all abilities” championships in today’s adaptive golf schedule. After discussions with many of the top ranked Adaptive golfers in the United States, every single one thought that an annual “major” involving all abilities is exactly what Adaptive Golf needs. With the assistance of Visit Tucson and others local sponsors, we have finalized planning with the scheduled tournament start date of 4/19/21 (practice rounds).
We are hosting a 54 hole “all” disability open championship followed by an 18 hole Scramble fundraiser (benefitting the UArizona Adaptive Sports Program ) in an “adaptive pro am” type format in which each foursome would optionally feature an internationally ranked adaptive golfer. We will be hosting a variety of adaptive golfers, including many world ranked players in the amputee, single limb, spinal, TBI, cognitive and vision impaired divisions. We intend the Conquistador to be a WG4DG (World Golf Ranking for Disabled Golfers) Premier and Challenge event that will be sanctioned by the USGA, R&A and EDGA.
