Single rider are available at all of the Oakland County Parks golf courses. Cost is equivalent to a 2-seat golf cart. Contact the course where you plan to golf 24 hours prior to your tee time to arrange cart availability.
These carts provide individuals with spinal cord injuries, amputees and other physical impairments the ability to play golf. The cart features a swivel seat that moves to a standing position and also pivots left and right, for maximum activity. The large non-slip wide tires reduce the potential of damage to the fairways.
Hand-operated boats available at Groveland Oaks and Independence Oaks.
In 2008, the Michigan Recreation and Parks Association Foundation and the Access to Recreation Initiative, funded by W. K. Kellogg Foundation, provided matching funds for pontoon boats. The boat is especially suited to provide nature and fishing opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
