WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID
Don’t take our word for it, in their words!
The inaugural Cairns Cup was a historic event, A true display of overcoming challenges through golf while representing our respective nations. The camaraderie displayed by both opponents was absolutely phenomenal. All players rose to the occasion & made their countries proud! We are blessed to continue this event every 2 years for decades to come.
Jonathan Snyder – USA
I’ve played a lot of sport in my time especially golf, though mostly as an able bodied man. I did think that becoming a bilateral below knee amputee would be the end of my particaption in golf but I was wrong. Representing Europe in The Cairns Cup was the very pinnacle of all my sporting life. Thanks for asking me to play, I wouldn’t have missed it for the world!
Nick Dodge – Europe
4 years of planning The Cairns Cup turned into a great success. We had a great display of two teams of mixed disabilities and skill levels coming together enjoying new friendships and having an absolute fantastic adaptive golf festival along with match play golf. It makes my heart happy when we all come together and share smiles at such a great event.
John Bell – USA
