"Based on the number of Americans with disabilities, the number of golf courses we have in this country, and the popularity of the sport of golf, there is no way we cannot successfully organize competitions across the United States." Jason Faircloth, Founder



"The 2019 United States Disabled Open was an overwhelming success for the entire
Richmond Region. It was exciting to see so many community partners support the
efforts of Jason and his team at the USDGA to bring the Nation's top disabled
golfers to Independence Golf Club. We highly encourage other destinations from
around the Country to consider partnering with the USDGA to bring a tournament to
your area. We promise that your entire community - from the media to volunteers to
businesses to golfers - will find value in supporting one of the most exciting
events to visit the Richmond Region in many years." - J.C. Poma, Sports Development
Manager at Richmond Region Tourism 


"Working together with Jason and helping him bring his dream event come to life was
truly an awesome experience. Jason worked tirelessly to bring this event to fruition
and brought over 70 people from all around the world with different disabilities
together on one course. The community support he was able to garner far surpassed a
lot of people's expectations and I know he will be able to carry this success into
future tournaments." - Danish Saadat, Sports Services Manager at Richmond Region
