Accessible Golf

Candlewood welcomes golfers with disabilities. Recently, we have made our golf course even more accommodating to ensure that golfers with disabilities are able to enjoy our course. From Holes 2 through 7, we have created entrances to tee boxes, fairways, and greens that are specifically marked as “Accessible Entrance Only.” (The signs are blue and white on a blue pole.) In addition, we have a Paramobile golf cart which is designed to help wheelchair users discover a new and unimagined level of freedom and independence on the golf course.

Please note…

  • Please let our Starter know before you check in that you will need an orange “accessible flag” for your golf cart.
  • The use of the Paramobile will require a brief training before you can use it for a round. Please call 860.354.9359 ext 3 for more details and to set up a training session.
  • In the event of severe weather, unexpected course conditions, or for golfer safety; accessible entrance points and use of Paramobile may be temporarily suspended or access rules may be modified.
