The National Alliance for Accessible Golf (Alliance) announces the launch of its redesigned website. Created in cooperation with Potomac Digitek, based in Gaithersburg, MD, the new site provides improved access to its many resources including:

  • Best Practices for Courses and Programs
  • Toolkit for Golfers
  • Toolkit for Golf Course Owners & Operators
  • Search Engine for Accessible Facilities
  • Speakers Bureau

President Mike Tinkey shares, “The Alliance has been blessed since the inception with a board of passionate, committed, and experienced individuals who have continued to increase awareness and participation while eliminating barriers for people with disabilities to be included and fostering inclusion in all of golf and society. Our new website reflects our continued focus on awareness, training, education, and technical resources, including places to play and learn for new and existing golfers and the associations and businesses that serve them. We bring together therapeutic, recreation, and rehabilitation industries, golf teaching professionals, club and golf associations and allied industries to provide resources for training individuals to better assist persons with disabilities through inclusion in all aspects of the game from recreational play to competitive play.”

The National Alliance for Accessible Golf is a charitable organization working to ensure the opportunity for all individuals to play the game of golf. The Alliance is represented by major golf organizations in the United States, organizations that provide services for people with disabilities and other advocates. Through GAIN™ (Golf: Accessible and Inclusive Networks) and other programs, the Alliance promotes inclusion and awareness to the golf industry, golf instructors, and the public.
