Accessible Golf and Miniature Golf Facilities
Thursday, June 2, 2022

Let’s get swinging on the fairways and greens! People with disabilities enjoy playing a round of golf or putt-putt during the summertime. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) Accessibility Standards address the design and construction of golf and miniature golf courses for accessibility. This session will review the scoping and technical requirements for accessible golf and miniature golf courses. U.S. Access Board staff Bill Botten and Juliet Shoultz will also address frequently asked questions and common sources of confusion about accessibility at golf and miniature golf facilities.

For golf courses, presenters will review the technical provisions that address teeing grounds, putting greens, teeing stations at driving ranges, course weather shelters, golf car rental areas, bag drop areas, and course toilet rooms. Additionally, they will address the special criteria that 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.

For miniature golf courses, presenters will review the scoping provisions for miniature golf that establish the minimum number of holes required to be accessible in newly constructed courses. They will also address the technical provisions for accessible routes on the playing surface or adjacent to the playing surface serving accessible holes, start of play areas, and the golf club reach range.

Questions can be submitted in advance of the session or can be posed during the live webinar. This webinar will include video remote interpreting (VRI) and real-time captioning. Webinar attendees can earn continuing education credits.

July AccessibilityOnline Webinar Series
Accessible Residential Facilities
Thursday, July 7, 2022

Accessibility guidelines and standards issued under the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Fair Housing Act, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act apply to residential dwelling units to ensure these facilities are accessible to people with disabilities. These laws, guidelines, and standards can be difficult to understand and lead to confusion for many design professionals, lawyers, and citizens. This session will clarify these laws and their application in the ADA and ABA Accessibility Guidelines for residential facilities. Presenters from the U.S. Access Board and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will review differences between Title II and III of the ADA and the ABA, as well as their overlap with HUD’s 504 regulations of the Rehabilitation Act. Additionally, presenters will highlight accessible design and construction requirements under the Fair Housing Act that apply broadly to most multifamily housing. The session will also cover scoping and technical requirements in the ADA and ABA Accessibility Guidelines for work surfaces, turning space, accessible routes, reach ranges, and windows in residential dwelling units.

Session participants are encouraged to share their own areas of confusion and submit questions in advance of the session. Questions can also be posed during the live webinar. This webinar will include video remote interpreting (VRI) and real-time captioning. Webinar attendees can earn continuing education credits.
