The ADA requires that newly constructedand altered state and local government facilities, places of public accommodation, and commercial facilities be readilyaccessible to, and usable by, individuals with disabilities.The ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) is the standardapplied to buildings and facilities. Recreational facilities,including miniature golf courses, are among the facilitiesrequired to comply with the ADA. The Access Board issued accessibility guidelines for newly constructed and alteredrecreation facilities in 2002. The recreation facility guidelines are a supplement to ADAAG. As a supplement, they must be used in conjunction with ADAAG. References to ADAAG arementioned throughout this summary. Copies of ADAAG and the recreation facility ccessibility guidelines can be obtained through the Board’s website at www.access-board.gov or by calling 1-800-872-2253 or 1-800-993-2822 (TTY). Once these guidelines are adopted by the Department of Justice (DOJ), all newly designed,constructed and altered recreation facilities covered by the ADA will be required to comply.  2 golf courses accessible golf courses A SUMMARY OF ACCESSIBILITY GUIDELINES FOR RECREATION FACILITIES   accessible miniature golf  The recreation facility guidelines cover the following facilities and elements:  Amusement rides  Boating facilities  Fishing piers and platforms  Miniature golf courses  Golf coursesThis guide is intended to help designers and operators in using the accessibility guidelinesfor miniature golf courses. These guidelines establish minimum accessibility requirementsfor newly designed or newly constructed and alteredminiature golf courses. This guide is not a collection of miniature golf course designs. Rather, it provides specifi-cations for elements within a miniature golf course tocreate a general level of usability for individuals withdisabilities. Emphasis is placed on ensuring thatindividuals with disabilities are generally able to accessthe miniature golf course and use a variety of elements.Designers and operators are encouraged to exceed theguidelines where possible to provide increased accessi-bility and opportunities. Incorporating accessibility intothe design of a miniature golf course should begin early in the planning process withcareful consideration to accessible holes and accessible routes.The recreation facility guidelines were developed with significant public participation. In1993, the Access Board established an advisory committee of 27 members to recommendaccessibility guidelines for recreation facilities. The Recreation Access AdvisoryCommittee represented the following groups and associations:  Exercise equipment  Bowling lanes  Shooting facilities  Swimming pools, wading pools, and spas     A    T    L    A    N    T    I    C    M    I    N    I    A    T    U    R    E    G    O    L    F
