"The Limbs 4 Life golfing clinics for amputee golfers have been developed by Sandhurst Golf Professional Christian Hamilton with the support of the PGA Learning Centre and Sandhurst Club over the past two years."

"The purpose of these clinics is to provide amputees with the tools required to become involved with golf and have the confidence to participate in sport after a serious injury."

Christian Hamilton said, "the visit by the President's Cup to Sandhurst provided a historic occasion for Sandhurst with the golf course being designed by Peter Thomson, Australia's most decorated golfer, Captain of the International Team in 1998 when the Presidents Cup was played at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne."
