That this House congratulates the Scottish Disability Golf Partnership (SDGP) for organising the Sixth Scottish Pan-Disability Open at the Fairmont Golf Course in St Andrews; notes this European ranking event will run from 21 to 24 August 2017 and that participants will play over the Torrance and Kittocks courses to win the coveted Sidey and Caledonia Cups; further notes the SDGP is a charity governed and operated by disabled people which organises projects, golf training, events and competitions across Scotland; is impressed that the SDGP, which now has over 130 members, was the first golfing organisation in the world open to people of any age with a physical, sensory or intellectual disability that interferes with the playing or learning about the game of golf; pays tribute to SDGP Chair Jim Gales MBE, himself a keen golfer with retinitis pigmentosa, along with his fellow organisers and their staff for all their hard work in organising this event; wishes participants and spectators well; and looks forward to the continued success of both the SDGP and future Scottish Pan-Disability Opens.
