Invitation to Participate in 2012 Golf Study by National Center on Accessibility (NCA)
July 26, 2012
The purpose of this study is to look at what encourages or discourages a person with a disability and/or health condition to play golf. A number of important events have occurred in recent years such as the invention or improvement of assistive devices for use in golf; development of ADA guidelines for recreation facilities including golf facilities; and an increase in the number of organizations promoting golf for persons with disabilities and health issues.
While one might assume that facilitators to pursuing golf have increased and barriers may have decreased, there is a need to determine the level of participation in golf by persons with disabilities, and what helps or hinders one’s interest in pursuing the game.
We would also appreciate if you could share this important study information with your others who may be interested and on your Facebook pages or other social media.
For questions about the study, please contact either Dr. Sherril York by email at firstname.lastname@example.org (812) 856-4422 or Jeffrey Chait by email at email@example.com (812) 964-0667. This survey is also available in alternative formats upon request.
