From the Executive Director: 2019 National Golf Day

FL Meeting

National Golf Day delegates visit with the office of Representative Brian Mast (FL).

On May 1, the National Alliance for Accessible Golf had the pleasure of participating in this year’s National Golf Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.  The National Alliance was part of a golf presentation in the Rayburn House Office Building Foyer along with participating in meetings with various member of Congress on issues facing the golf industry such as environmental, labor and health and wellness.  We had good traffic in the Rayburn Foyer from Members of Congress along with Congressional Staff and others that were visiting the Capitol.  We were pleased to be joined on Capitol Hill by members of the Board of Directors and Advisory Board from the National Alliance, especially Tom Houston and Susan Deis, both advocates for accessibility and inclusion.

On May 2, the National Alliance conducted its Spring Board Meeting at Club Management Association of America (CMAA) offices in Alexandria, VA.  The discussion centered around opportunities over the next year for the National Alliance to educate the golf industry on accessibility and inclusion, as well as discussions on strategic direction for the next few years.  The meeting included some great input from the Board and Advisory and we look forward to formalizing the direction over the next year to achieve our mission of increasing participation in the game of golf by individuals with disabilities and ensuring that those individuals have the opportunity to experience the game at whatever level their abilities allow.

Remember that our website at www.accessgolf.org has some excellent resources not only for golfers with disabilities but facilities and programs as well. Note that the website is being reconstructed as we speak and we expect to have a new look shortly.

Steve Jubb, PGA – Executive Director
