Ace scores for an ace team: STEPS father and son duo join charity golfing tournament
One of the most inclusive sporting events available in the Sunshine Coast area, the GPAI Charity Golfing event, will be hosted again by the Nambour Golf Club.
Created in 2014 by Golf Programs Australia Inc, this year’s tournament marks the seventh year of the annual event.
The event aims at supporting inclusion for all in the low-impact sport and hosts the catch phrase of “Driving Inclusion and Breaking Isolation”.
The upcoming tournament is being held on the 13th of December and will see mainstream golfers get the chance to team up with an intellectually disabled partner to compete for the GPAI Cannon Family shield.
This year, we are incredibly proud to have one of our own colleagues, Deputy CEO of STEPS Bryan McCormick, participating with his son, Sebastian, as a team in the 2020 tournament.
Sebastian is a current student at STEPS Pathways College and is eager to utilise his skills while participating with his father.
Speaking with Sebastian about the upcoming event, he said that he was “excited to find such an amazing golf program on the Sunshine Coast.”
“Everyone should give it a go,” Sebastian added.
Carmel Crouch, the founder of STEPS, was also quick to throw her support behind the duo.
“Inclusiveness in any year, but especially this one, is a necessity. It’s so important to ensure that everyone has the chance to give things a go, and to reflect to our community that hard work and passion are not invalidated by disabilities.” Ms. Crouch said.
“Bryan and Sebastian make a great team on and off the golf course, and I am so glad that they’re joining a great event like this,” Ms. Crouch added.
While we wish Sebastian and Bryan the best of luck in taking out the shield, we know the fun of the event will be reward enough.
Want to cheer on Sebastian and Bryan at the event?
When: All-day event on 13th December 2020.
Where: Nambour Golf Club at 1051 Nambour Connection Road, Nambour.
