Moore Park Golf, located in Centennial Parklands, is not only one of Australia’s best and busiest public golf courses – but one of the most disability-friendly!

Australia’s first publicly accessible Paragolfer

This year Moore Park Golf launched what is Australia’s first publicly bookable paragolfer.

The Paragolfer is a singular all-terrain special mobility device that lifts people from a sitting position to a standing position. Aside from the many physical benefits of this feature, standing upright also offers the psychological benefit of communicating with others at eye level.

The standing device allows for extremely fast and easy adjustment of seat depth and lower leg length – a feature without which the highly flexible function would not be possible.

By enabling an upright posture, the ParaGolfer allows for unrestricted shoulder movement to facilitate key movements to promote a golf swing action, a huge benefit on the golf course and driving range.

You can find all the information on this amazing machine on the Moore Park Golf website.
