The Need for Awareness:
The Millman N.R.G. Foundation creates and promotes awareness about the benefits of accessible golf. In addition to online publications and social media marketing, the Millman N.R.G. Foundation engages in speaking opportunities at conferences and other public events.
According to the US Census Bureau 2002 survey, there are approximately 51 million Americans with some form of disability. This includes 18 percent of the total US population. In other words, almost 1 in 5 U.S. residents has a disability.
According to a study conducted by the National Center on Accessibility at Indiana University in cooperation with Clemson University:
• 10 percent of persons with some disability now play golf.
• 22 percent of those with disabilities played golf before incurring their disability, but are not playing now.
• 35 percent of individuals with disabilities are currently not playing golf, but are interested in learning.
The study identified key factors for why those 35 percent of the people with disabilities would like to, but were not playing golf, and found that:
• 33 percent felt uncomfortable about playing in front of others.
• 31 percent believed that the course staff did not know how to assist them.
• 36 percent said that they needed a better understanding of the fundamentals of golf.
• 38 percent stated a need for lessons specific to their disability.
The Millman N.R.G. Foundation encourages, supports and prepares all youth, including those from the inner city to pursue the sport of golf and other athletic, academic and technical careers including the golfing industry.
The program provides developmental learning experience in addition to golfing instructions that are not only enjoyable but also educational and effective in promoting academic excellence teaching good citizenship and a lifelong drug free productive individual. The program’s objective is to introduce a non-traditional sport as a new learning activity.
The goal is to create an interest in golfing using that interest to promote other learning experiences. The program employs the concept of transfer learning to promote scholastic achievement and social skills. The interest created in this sport is conducive to promoting a crime and drug free environment because golf has all the behavioral aspects that help produce strong character and social skills associated with productive law abiding citizens. That is why the game is called “a gentleman’s game”.

With the challenges our students deal with daily, we found the use of the SNAG golf learning equipment was an ideal choice. The SNAG people have been very supportive of the N.R.G. Foundation and we're proud to be partnered with them.
