The Special Olympics golf program is centered on two educational phases designed to encompass all skill levels: learning to swing a golf club and learning to play the game. Athletes may participate in individual skills, 3-hole Unified or individual play, or 9-hole Unified or individual play.

Special Olympics Minnesota currently offers three levels of golf competition: Individual skills competition, 3-hole competition and 9-hole competition. In order for athletes to advance to 9-hole competitions, they must achieve a total of 40 points in a sanctioned Individual skills event. Athletes who score less than 40 have the opportunity to compete in 3-hole competitions.

In addition to traditional events, athletes can participate in Unified Sports® Team Play. Unified Sports® is a program that assigns Special Olympics athletes and athletes without intellectual disabilities (Unified partners) to the same teams for training and competition. In Unified Sports® golf, teams consist of one Special Olympics athlete and one Unified Partner and the team plays in the Unified team play competition event and alternate shots.
