From the Executive Director: Stay Healthy and in Golf Shape

We are all experiencing challenging times right now.  Life has changed temporarily.  Social distancing has become the norm.  Golf courses have closed in some areas.  But if we dwell on the negative, it will not be good for our physical and mental health or the game of golf.

Instead, let’s look forward to the day when we can all hit the links again.  In the meantime, do what you can to stay healthy and in golf shape.  For those with disabilities, it is even more important.  Look for opportunities such as what Matthew Drumwright, Special Olympics Athlete in Tennessee, has done.  Daily he has posted a Facebook Video highlighting how he is staying healthy physically and mentally.  https://www.facebook.com/specialolympicstn/videos/205444217454660/

Great stuff and keep posting, Matthew.  If you are a person with disability or know of someone moving beyond the challenges of today, please send their story my way at info@accessgolf.org.

As we progress this year, we are pleased to have an opportunity in October to share with the National Recreation and Parks Association and its members about accessibility and inclusion.  And we are starting plans for our 4th annual education conference on Inclusion next January during the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL.  Aside from those opportunities to share the message, information and resources, we are always on the look for other opportunities to educate organizations and programs on the benefits of inclusion in the game of golf.

Finally, if you have a program, do instruction or have a facility that is accessible for individuals with disabilities, we have a search engine on our website at www.accessgolf.org.  Go there and enter your information so we can share that with individuals that are looking for access to our game.

Finally, be safe and well, and remember – CHOOSE TO INCLUDE

Steve Jubb, PGA
