August 16, 2023, Charleston, SC: Viewpoint with Dennis Quaid, winners of numerous television programming awards, has recently distributed a documentary for public television stations across the country telling the story of the National Alliance for Accessible golf and our mission of “Increasing the participation of individuals with disabilities in the game of golf.”
The Alliance was identified by Viewpoint as an organization that is working to change the lives of individuals with disabilities through the game of golf. The short-form documentary is airing throughout the next year on public television stations around the country and can also be viewed through the link below for a short period of time.
Viewpoint has a rich history of identifying stories and organizations that aspire to contribute to a better world and the Alliance has been a golf industry leader through education, resource development and advocacy since 2001, launching a modest grant program in 2010 for the growth of accessible and inclusive programming at golf therapeutic facilities.
“Our organizational focus includes educating the golf industry related to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to create more welcoming, accessible and inclusive environments that increase the opportunities for individuals with disabilities to benefit from the same opportunities everyone has to play the game of golf,” says Dave Barton, PGA, Executive Director of the Alliance.
Barton, continues, “Viewpoint provides an opportunity for us to share a story that goes way beyond the Alliance and involves golf and therapeutic professionals, volunteers, programs and facilities around the country dedicated in the service to others. We hope the Viewpoint story on our organization simply contributes to a greater understanding of the dedication of so many others and the importance of these efforts.”
