About WR4GD Certification

WR4GD Certification is a process that the game of golf uses to confirm that an individual has an impairment that severely affects their ability to play golf. There are three different types of passes an individual with a disability can apply for that can allow them to participate in different events. The WR4GD pass is a pass that makes a qualified individual eligible to participate in any adaptive golf event.

The World Rankings for Golfers with Disability (WR4GD) is a worldwide ranking system partnered with the R&A and USGA that ranks both men and women with disabilities based on their participation in qualifying golf events.

The Access Pass is for players with a disability falling within qualifying categories, but not severe enough for the WR4GD pass. The Access Conditional Pass is for players with a condition accepted as a disability in their country, not covered by qualifying categories.
