Making It A Game Fore AllBook - 2006
Of all sport experiences, golf is ideal for people of all abilities. Its rules, strategies, facilities, and equipment can easily be adapted to accommodate a wide range of individual needs. Accessible Golf addresses the specific aspects of building a full-participation golf program.
This book contains details for making golf accessible within the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), taking into account the specific needs of your community and its individual members. Case studies and other practical, field-tested information allow you to fully understand the real-world needs of people with specific disabilities--including cognitive, attentional, visual, hearing, and physical impairments--and their implications for golf instruction.
Developed by the Ladies' Professional Golf Association (LPGA), this comprehensive book offers all the tools to successfully implement an all-access program--from adapting equipment and environment to modifying instruction and details of play. Accessible Golf is the one resource golf instructors, club owners, and people who have disabilities or work with someone who has a disability will use to reap the benefits of this popular game.
