Accessible Golf Courses

Thursday, January 5, 2012

The 2010 ADA Accessibility Standards and the Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Standards address the design and construction of golf courses. Technical provisions address teeing grounds, putting greens, teeing stations at driving ranges, course weather shelters, golf car rental areas, bag drop areas, and course toilet rooms. Special criteria permit the use of a "golf car passage" in lieu of the traditional accessible route to connect these spaces within the boundary of the course. This session will review these specifications and highlight the impact on newly constructed, altered, and existing golf courses.
