The National Alliance for Accessible Golf (Alliance) is a charitable organization working to ensure the opportunity for all individuals to play the game of golf.

The Alliance is represented by major golf organizations in the United States, organizations that provide services for people with disabilities, and other advocates. Through GAINTM (Golf: Accessible and Inclusive Networks) and other programs, the Alliance promotes inclusion and awareness to the golf industry, golf instructors, and the public.

Through a grant from the United States Golf Association, the National Alliance for Accessible Golf is expanding its efforts to provide financial assistance and resources to help make the game of golf more accessible to people with disabilities. With funding from a USGA grant, the Alliance will for the first time administer a grant-application process for organizations that provide golf programs for individuals with disabilities. These grants will defray core program costs and support programs to help golfers with disabilities both learn and transition into playing the game. Eligibility guidelines and application materials are available here.
