Charleston, SC: The National Alliance for Accessible Golf (the Alliance) announces the launch of the Alliance Education Hub, a free, publicly available learning platform designed to deliver on-demand education to support the organization’s mission “to increase the participation of people with disabilities in the game of golf”.
The education delivered by the Alliance will be available to anyone who seeks it through GAIN – the Golf Access and Inclusion Network™. It may also be accessed via the Alliance Education Hub.
Initial offerings include a series of Onboarding Lessons designed for golf facility leadership and staff related to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), types of disabilities, creating inclusive environments with policies, marketing and communications, along with building and golf course access requirements designed to prioritize the information owners and operators need to know.
As it grows, the Alliance Education Hub will also include micro learning lessons to provide quick answers to common questions operators ask related to the ADA and how to best serve ALL the customers choosing to visit your golf facility as well as information for golf instructors and those seeking to start programs.
According to Dave Barton, PGA, Executive Director, “As we move into 2024, it is a primary goal of ours to simplify the access to education of relevance to those that have the most influence on the growth of golfers with disabilities in the game. This group includes owners, leadership and staff across departments, instructors and, of course, health care professionals who contribute to program successes all over the country.”
Barton continues, “Golf is a game for all and so is the education we will continue to create, source, and provide. Beyond the importance of access and inclusion in the game of golf, I can say as an instructor myself, we are going to work to make it easier for current instructors and those who may just be growing an interest to learn more about developing golfers with a range of different types of disabilities.”
