Are You Interested in Hosting an Adaptive Golf Tournament?


If you answered "YES" to this question, that's great, but are you really ready? Do you already provide a welcoming, accessible and inclusive environment for golfers with disabilities to learn and play the game? If you are not yet providing barrier free access to the buildings and the golf course and a culture that embraces golfers of ALL abilities, here is where you need to begin.


Conduct a "Self-Assessment" of your facility and gauge how prepared you really are. Do you have an accessible website? Have you used the ADA Checklist for Existing Facilities - Golf Facilities to evaluate your practice areas and course for ADA compliance? Do you have clear, published policies on your website to help ensure positive experiences for both golfers and staff? Are you conducting staff and leadership training related to the ADA and the game of golf to foster a culture of inclusion?


If you can answer "NO" to any one of these four questions, your facility has some opportunities for improvement and the National Alliance is here to help. Visit GAIN - the Golf Access and Inclusion Network®, access the Alliance Education Hub and begin your assessment today.

Accessibility Awareness Day


The National Alliance for Accessible Golf is proud to be an organization that advocates for more access and inclusion in the game of golf. We are certainly not alone in these efforts and continue to encourage golf courses across the country to demonstrate their commitment to access and ensure the first impression is a lasting impression by providing an accessible website for customers with disabilities.

Alliance Partner in Focus

"We would not be able to conduct our mission without Wadsworth," says Alliance Executive Director Dave Barton, PGA. He continues, "Wadsworth has stood behind us for many years and as we move into new territory with the launch of GAIN - the Golf Access and Inclusion Network® and the Alliance Education Hub, it is our plan to continue to show them what their support makes possible."


As the Wadsworth goal states, the game of golf "... embodies the qualities of charity, a lenient judgment of others and the opportunity for enriching the lives of all who come in contact with the game."


These words resonate strongly as the Alliance works to deliver education designed to help develop more welcoming, accessible and inclusive environments in the game. There is work to be done and the Alliance, with the support of Wadsworth and other amazing organizations is on this path. Thank you Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation.
