From the Executive Director: Launching Our New Search Engine

Launching Our New Search Engine

Hope everyone is having a great summer and are on the links playing our great sport, a sport that anyone can play, young or old, no matter what one’s ability level is.  It may be that one only can engage with golf on the putting green, on the range or only play 1 or 2 holes.  But they are involved in golf.  It is a sport that allows one to get out of the house into an open air environment with friends and family.  It can be a healthy sport from a physical, mental as well as social perspective.  So, get out and play.

If you are looking for a golf facility and or program that is accessible, has adaptive golf instruction programs and/or has adaptive golf equipment, then check out our new search engine on www.accessgolf.org.  You can search by zip code as well as specific instruction programs and find a course nearby.  Keep in mind that we are still building our database and each day adding new facilities. Also, if you operate a golf facility or program, we would love to have you on this search engine.  At the bottom of the search screen, there is a link to provide your facility and program information.

Later this month, I will have the honor of being at the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles from July 27 through July 31.  In addition to representing the National Alliance for Accessible Golf at the various functions including Opening Ceremonies, I will also be head rules official for the golf competition at Griffith Park golf courses.  If you are in the Los Angeles area, stop by and see some great golf by Special Olympics Athletes.

The Alliance is reliant on support from the allied golf associations along with support from individuals and organizations that have an interest in seeing the game of golf more inclusive.  If you would like to become a Friend of the Alliance and support our efforts, go to www.accessgolf.org and click on the “Donate” button.  Any support would be greatly appreciated as we work to ensure that golf is for everyone.

Look for my blog again next month where I will be sharing about the events at Special Olympics World Games.
