Gleneagles change disability policy after shunning golfer
World-rennowned golf club Gleneagles are reviewing their discrimination policy after complaints from a disabled golfer brought to light its unjust nature.
Retired police officer Phil Housley was told he would have to pay hundreds more than his non-disabled friends if he wanted to play there.
Housley spent £1000 on his own buggy to take him around the course, but the club would not allow him to use it, instead telling him he would have to pay up to £230 per day to hire one of their vehicles.
The club claimed it was due to “safety concerns,” but are reviewing their policies after waiving Housley’s buggy fees.
