The National Alliance for Accessible Golf, which counts GCSAA as one of the official "Friends of the Alliance," has issued updates to two of its signature resources, the Toolkit for Golfers and, most notably to superintendents, the Toolkit for Golf Course Owners/Operators.
The primary update to both toolkits includes information to reflect the 2010 Accessibility Guidelines, which went into effect March 15 of this year. The owners/operators toolkit was designed to provide guidance in making golf courses more accessible to golfers with disabilities, specifically Title III which requires public accomodations — including golf courses — to provide goods and services to people with disabilities on an equal basis.
Developed collaboratively by the organizations represented on the Alliance, including the American Therapeutic Recreation Association and Indiana University's National Center of Accessibility, these toolkits detail golf adaptations for a wide range of disabilities, provides real-life success stories of individuals with disabilities and lists a number of resources for persons interested in pursuing golf.
Both toolkits are available in PDF formats and can be downloaded from the Alliance's website.
