Specialized Programs


Picture of people in Golf course
A group of people at a golf course get ready to play the game.
Specialized programs are those that are generally disability specific and/or competition oriented for a specific group. Examples of these would include Special Olympics Golf and the golf tournaments of the National Amputee Golf Association. Participants in these programs often become involved in other golf opportunities as a result of their initial participation in these specialized programs. Many community park and recreation agencies also provide adapted or special recreation programming for people with disabilities. These "segregated" programs are often a very good building block for participants with disabilities to participate in an inclusive golf program. Also, at times individuals prefer to participate in these programs with their peers with disabilities. Often, people with disabilities have limited choices, so a specialized program should be one in the continuum towards fully inclusive programs.

Each of the above referenced programs can and often do play an important role in advancing the opportunities for initiating fully inclusive community-based programs. Creating exposure to golf and developing some awareness and skills in the game can be helpful for participants moving into an inclusive community-based golf program.
