Canadian Special Olympics Golfers Arrive to
Play the Beautiful Golf Courses of Barbados
In its continuing support of sports tourism, Special Olympics Barbados announces the arrival of the second Canadian delegation to visit our nation in the month of October. After successfully hosting a 19-member group from Special Olympics Brampton, Ontario, the local organisation will welcome golfers from Special Olympics Mississauga, Ontario.  On Friday, October 17, Keith Boyce, Special Olympics golf coach and certified member of the Canadian Golf Teachers Federation, United States Golf Teachers Federation and World Golf Teachers Federation, returns to Barbados with two of his accomplished, medal-winning Special Olympics golfers, Aaron Lindsay and Arthur Rea, Jr.
Mr. Boyce, a Barbadian who now lives in Canada, is the impetus behind the current Special Olympics Barbados golf programme. In 2012, assisted by Aaron and Arthur, he conducted a golf clinic, which started the local Special Olympics golf programme. He is also responsible for supplying most of the golf equipment which is used by Special Olympics Barbados.
The Canadian visitors will enjoy a golf-filled visit, compliments of local golf clubs, which have been extremely supportive of the Special Olympics Barbados golf programme. Mr. Boyce, Aaron and Arthur will likely awake to hit the links many mornings during their stay at the Rockley Golf Club. In addition, they will play rounds of golf at the Apes Hill Golf Club and the Royal Westmoreland Golf Club, compliments of those two facilities. The three visitors will also be seen frequently at the Barbados Golf Club when they join Special Olympics Barbados athletes for their twice-a-week practices.
Special Olympics Barbados will welcome Keith, Aaron and Arthur on their arrival Friday October 17, at 3:00 pm at the Grantley Adams International Airport. Media representatives are cordially invited to attend the airport welcome in support of Barbados sports tourism.
