Many Special Olympics golfers worldwide are very skilled, and they look forward to the chance to compete against equally skilled players. So Special Olympics Denmark
and Helsingør Golf Club took this initiative to invite the very best players to compete in early August 2014.
The invitational tournament was played 4 August to 6 August. The format for the cup was be an individual 3 x 18 hole
stroke play competition and also a net-competition based on the players actual golf handicaps.
This was the first Special Olympics world competition, but tournament organizers hope it will catch on as an ongoing event.
All Special Olympics events are made possible by the work of volunteers and the donations of individuals and organizations who support the Special Olympics mission
. The World Golf Cup was supported by The Konventum Congress Center, who sponsored the accommodation of players;, Spar Nord Bank; The Solar Foundation; the municipality of Helsingør; a member of the golf club who donated $10,000.
