The National Alliance for Accessible Golf (Alliance) is an organization working to ensure the opportunity for all individuals with disabilities to play the game of golf. Formed in the summer of 2001, the Alliance is represented by major golf organizations in the United States, organizations that provide services for people with disabilities and others who advocate for the inclusion of people with disabilities into society.

The mission of the Alliance is to increase participation of people with disabilities in the game of golf. Through the game of golf, individuals with disabilities become actively engaged in the social fabric of a community, and derive health benefits that improve quality of life. The Alliance asserts that all individuals are entitled to play the game of golf regardless of their ability, socio-economic condition or experience. Information about the benefits of golf for persons with disabilities and the golf industry must be constantly shared with the media, public, health, rehabilitation, recreation and golf professionals.

The Alliance Headquarters is located in St. Augustine, FL, and is administered by a Board of Directors representing those organizations instrumental in forming the Alliance.
