From the Executive Director: Ending the Year with Thank You!

I love the change of the seasons. In November, the leaves had turned to bright colors around the country, and now we have snow. Wishing each of our readers and supporters a merry and bright Holiday season.

Coming off December 1st which was “Giving Tuesday”, I wanted to end this year with a big thank you to all the organizations and individuals that have supported the work of the National Alliance in 2020. If you missed Giving Tuesday, it is not too late to support the efforts of the National Alliance for Accessible Golf.  Go to www.accessgolf.org/donate.  Your support will help us achieve our mission of ensuring that individuals with disabilities have the opportunity to experience the game of golf and the health and wellness benefits that help enhance their inclusion in the community and society.

As you may or may not be aware, the National Alliance was formed back in 2001 and is represented by the major golf associations, recreation and therapeutic organizations and individuals who advocate for inclusion of people with disabilities into the game and society.

Back in 2015, we launched our facility/program/instruction search engine on our website (www.accessgolf.org) where an individual can locate a facility or program that has adaptive instruction and accessible golf.  We continue to see a lot of clicks on the search engine as well as additional facilities/programs/instructors coming online.  If you run a facility, program or are a golf instructor that serves individuals with disabilities, go to our https://www.accessgolf.org/submit-a-new-facility/.

All in all, 2020 has been a challenging year.  We are definitely looking towards 2021 and how the National Alliance can expand its reach and mission to increase the participation of people with disabilities in the game of golf.  Keep an eye on our website at www.accessgolf.org for upcoming education opportunities for facilities, programs, and instructors.

See you in 2021 with another series of Blogs.
