about the national alliance

What We Do


The National Alliance creates and promotes awareness about the benefits of accessible golf. In addition to online publications and social media marketing, the National Alliance engages in speaking opportunities at conferences and other public events.



GAIN™ (Golf: Accessible and Inclusive Networks)
GAIN™ is not just a golf program. It is a community-based instruction golf program primarily focused on assisting individuals with disabilities to become involved in the fabric of their community. The program uses golf as a primary vehicle to achieve that. It is also a program that includes participants without disabilities and uses socialization activities among all participants to achieve the goal of inclusion.

Education and Technical Resources for Golfers and Golf Facilities
The National Alliance is available to provide technical assistance and training. In addition, the National Alliance has developed a toolkit to provide general guidance for individuals with disabilities who are interested in the game of golf as well as a toolkit to provide guidance to golf course owners and operators seeking ways to make their golf courses and facilities more accessible to golfers with disabilities.


 National Alliance Grant Program
With previous grants from the USGA, the National Alliance administers the grant-application process for organizations and GAIN programs providing golf programs for individuals with disabilities. The National Alliance is particularly interested in applications that demonstrate focus on inclusion of people with disabilities in programs that involve those without disabilities with the ultimate goal of enhancing their inclusion into the fabric of their community.
