The Society of One-Armed Golfers was founded in 1932.
Initially the formation was principally for golfers who had lost an arm in World War 1 but over the years has evolved and now includes golfers who have lost the use of an arm through conflict, road or industrial accidents, birth defects or neurological reasons.

Our objective is to provide a level playing field for such golfers and our criteria is that every shot must be played using only one arm and without the use of prosthetics or other aids. The loss of an arm or its use is a traumatic experience and the Society has inspired many people to continue as normally as possible with their lives.

Each year the Society holds national competitions and a World Championship which is attended by up to 72 golfers of all standards from a dozen countries around the world. Although using only one arm, standards are high and the 2015 final was between two low handicappers from England and South Africa, both of whom can hit 300 yard drives.

The Society is a recognised charity in England and Scotland.
