Rulings on ADA Filing RightsWritten by Lala C. Ballatan

Well all I can say is that, didn’t they know that golf courses, including most private clubs, must provide a wide variety of disabled individuals with “reasonable accommodation”? And reasonable accommodation is defined as one that does not present an undue burden or alter fundamental nature of activity. Through complaints and litigation, golf facilities must:
• Allow wheelchair access anywhere carts are permitted, with similar limitations regarding specific weather conditions • Erect rope barriers that don't eliminate access, but mildly inconveniencing disabled golfers is permissible. • Provide access to all courses, not just one, at multiple-course facilities • Make all new and renovation work ADA-compliant, but there is no reconstruction required solely to satisfy ADA. • Make parking lots, practice facilities and buildings accessible. This has affected parking lots, walkways and two-story clubhouses, which often require an elevator to accommodate any job needing access to both floors.
Now if you will be setting up a golf club that took you a lot of worth and money, you must consider all options in setting it up. Would you risk investing more to accommodate even disabled persons or risk your reputation because of your non-compliance with ADA rulings and having wheelchair-bound golfers sue you for discrimination. Think that over, folks.
