The PDGA Course Directory has always indicated which courses have some form of handicapped accessibility.

and yea just take ur buddy out and let him try to get a feel for the course, and let him try some different shots and have him practice putt! who cares about stokes untill he gets a good feel for having to roll on the grass and then throw every shot, i think its a great idea!

I would say anything he can't get a proper stance on call casual. If you are in a wheel chair the actually fairway is considerable smaller because there are only so many places you can go.

I'm pretty sure he meant to say sight impaired, not deaf.

Blind is a bad word now? I must be mentally disabled to not know that. Adapt the chair for the grass with some quick release knobby ones.

No I meant sight impaired, because you don't have to be blind for it to be helpful - some players vision at 30-50 feet is very blurry , but they can see shapes or blury visions and they throw at the "blur" - the bell is used more on "post courses" than basket courses as with baskets you can hear the chains.

I have played with people who couldn't see you 50 feet in front of them, but at 200-300 feet away they could almost "see" things clearer.

My dad's friend growing up had off road tires for disc golfing. He threw backhand and could still kick my butt to this day in an accuracy contest.

Is that a joke or did you mean visually impaired? obviously the Deaf need no accomodation other than someone to tap them on the shoulder when someone yells "FORE"

saying "Mentally disabled" is actually more offensive than saying blind now, the PC term of the week is "intellectually impaired"
For the word "blind" depends upon how it is used. It is not taboo like midget, but it is more appropriate to use person first terms, so "Blind dude" is not acceptable where the guy who is blind would be more appropriate. "The guy with a visual impairment" is most appropriate.
If you want to offend someone who is blind or deaf, ask them why they don't compete in the Special Olympics, that will offend them!...I have heard it happen multiple times.
