OAS offers community adaptive golf clinics at Awbrey Glen Golf Club from late May through the August. With access to the driving range, practice green, and 5 hole practice loop, adaptive golfers can learn and practice the core elements of the game. Our golf program is open to individuals of any ability ages 8 and up.

Awbrey Glen owns a solo-rider adaptive golf cart which allows individuals with lower extremity impairments to successfully play and with the support of volunteers can facilitate a fun golf experience for almost any individual. Athletes not needing instruction can contact the course directly to use the cart on their own. Awbrey Glen Golf Club boasts one of the best learning facilities in Central Oregon!

To learn more, see upcoming dates, and register in advance, please visit our Events Page for the next Community Golf Clinic!

Adaptive Summer Equipment

Adaptive Golf Cart

For individuals with lower body mobility or significant balance challenges, the adaptive golf carts are a great option. These golf carts have adaptations to not only make piloting them easier (gas, brakes, steerings) but also has a swiveling seat that tilts to help support the golfer in a standing position. Awbrey Glen Golf Club owns two of the SoloRider model adaptive golf carts which OAS has access to for programs.

AdvenChair

Created by former OAS Board Member Geoff Babb, the AdvenChair is an off-road wheelchair designed to get individuals off the beaten path and on to the trails previously seen as inaccessible. Participants with more significant mobility challenges can use this chair with the support of instructors and volunteers to explore new trails.

Bowhead RX

The Bowhead RX™ integrates the Bowhead FLOW™ articulating front-end from our award-winning Bowhead Reach™bike with the new single-pivot MX-style rear swingarm and suspension system for a nimble and agile ride. Traversing off-cambered and rough terrain is a breeze, and the RX provides endless opportunities for access and exploration whether you’re hammering down a paved road, navigating a gravel track, flowing cross-country, or shredding single-track mountain trails. The RX features the Bosch Performance CX eMTB motor and electronics system that provides seamless torque-sensing assistance, amplifying the power of arms by up to 3.5 times, and the electronic shifting SRAM Eagle 12-speed drivetrain. The motor and batteries are mounted mid-bike, through a superbike MotoGP-style aluminum subframe, to create the ideal low center of gravity and roll. The RX is uniquely tuned to each riders’ thirst-for- adventure profile to provide a truly custom experience.

Climbing Harnesses

One of the most important parts of adaptive climbing is finding a harness setup that works for the climber. OAS uses standard climbing harnesses and/or other climbing harnesses to give the user the best possible climbing experience.

OAS Fleet Includes:
Misty Easy Seat Harness
Edelrid Flex Pro Harness
Edelrid Chest Harness
Metolius Chest Harness
Petzl Youth Harness
Metolius Waldo Harness

E-Lasher ATH-FS

The ATH-FS is a rugged full suspension magnesium frame handcycle with Fox Shox shock absorbers on all three wheels. It is specifically designed for off road adventures with a patented front fork shock design that provides a smooth ride even in the most demanding terrain. Fully adjustable depth and angle seat back settings allow for a high degree of control and adjustment for maximum comfort. All wheel hydraulic disc brakes offer superior stopping power.

OAS has a number of standard golf club sets that can be used by individuals looking to golf.

ICE Full Fat

An expedition-tough trike, originally designed for record-setting, the Full Fat combines durability, reliability and specialist features for conquering the most challenging terrain. Rough trails, sand, snow, and mud; if you pedal, it’ll take you there.

Kayaking Adaptations

Kayaking can be adapted with both equipment and instruction. OAS uses a variety of adaptations to assist athletes when necessary including paddle supports, paddle grip attachment, different paddles and adaptive seats.

Lasher

More than an off-the-shelf handcycle with fat tires, the Lasher Sport ATH (All Terrain Handcycle) was specifically designed for use off road, yet is still very adept on the pavement. A generous 6” of ground clearance helps you get over rough trails and gnarly terrain. That’s enough clearance to pop up or drop down a standard height curb when biking in the concrete jungle.

Fully adjustable depth and angle seat back settings allow for a high degree of control and adjustment for maximum comfort. Front wheel hydraulic disc brake is standard with optional rear wheel brakes available.

Mechanical Advantage Pulley System

Based on the technique pioneered by Mark Wellman in Yosemite, this system uses a 3:1 mechanical advantage pulley system to either capture the progress of the climber or to assist the climber up the wall. Climber can choose to use the system on the rock wall or using the pull up bar and seated harness to ascend the rope separate from the wall.

Reactive Bomber

With reinforced tubing joints in areas of high stress throughout the frame, the Bomber RS has been built to withstand even the toughest tests on the trail, in the backcountry and yet stay lightweight and agile. The Bomber’s rear suspension provides improved ride quality, downhill speed control and improved traction uphill. The 24” wheels provide increased ground clearance, improved traction, increased speed, and a smoother ride. The replaceable derailleur hanger improves reliability on the trail and longevity for the frame when facing those close calls with rocks and logs.

This off-road handcycle is designed for a rider in the prone body position. This allows the rider to see the terrain ahead more easily and have the advantage of body weight over the crank set for added power. The primary steering is through a single, stock, mountain bike handlebar. This gives the rider the real mountain bike feel. The secondary steering is done through a chest pad. This chest pad has a flat design for decreased pressure points and improved comfort and control for both males and females. The knee rests are molded with fiberglass (see options for carbon fiber upgrades) for greater impact resistance, added strength and reduced weight. Knee rests are reinforced at knee bar area for greater strength and longevity.

Reactive Hammerhead Coming 2023

Based on the Bomber RS with reinforced tubing joints in areas of high stress throughout the frame, the Hammerhead has been built to withstand even the toughest tests on the trail and in the backcountry and yet stay lightweight and agile. The Hammerhead’s front and rear suspension provides improved ride quality, downhill speed control and improved traction uphill. The 26” wheels provide increased ground clearance, improved traction, increased speed, and a smoother ride. The replaceable derailleur hanger improves reliability on the trail and longevity for the frame when facing those close calls with rocks and logs.

Reactive Nuke

The NUKE Off Road Recumbent handcycle is a unique, capable, rear wheel drive recumbent handcycle with rear suspension.  Rear wheel drive handcycles are superior and much more capable than their front wheel drive counterparts.  Traction and hill climbing with a rear wheel drive recumbent handcycle are second to none.  The Nuke was developed for riders not able to or not interested in riding in the prone position (kneeling, face down). The recumbent position is preferred by some riders.

The Nuke rear suspension provides improved ride quality, downhill speed control and improved traction uphill. The 24” wheels provide increased ground clearance, improved traction, increased speed, and a smoother ride. The frame joints in the Nuke are reinforced for integrity and reliability out on the trail.

Tandem Bike

A tandem cycle is a cycle built for two individuals where the “captain” pilots the tandem bicycle, typically managing the steering and brakes. The “stoker” assists with pedaling. Tandem bikes are a good option for people with visual impairments or disabilities affecting balance.

OAS Fleet Includes:
Trek T900
Santana Sovereign
Hase Pino (recumbent in front)
Burley Tandem

kayakers paddling in tandem boat in the pole pedal paddle race

Tandem Kayak

Tandem kayaks are two person kayaks where an athlete will paddle with a trained volunteer or staff member. These are great for first-time paddlers or those who need the assistance of a guide. OAS fleet includes both “sit-in” and “sit on top” styles.
