We are delighted to announce that in February 2022 we secured the SafeGolf Award from England Golf.
SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies committed to producing a safe and positive environment for all those participating, working and volunteering in the sport of golf.
The SafeGolf Partnership has been established to help golf respond to the issue of child protection in sport. Its mission is to guard the welfare of children and young people, as well as adults at risk, in the sport of golf.
SafeGolf is, firstly, a website – www.safegolf.org – through which anyone with a concern about the welfare of a player, or the behaviour and practice of a coach, volunteer, organiser, parent or a player, can contact the lead safeguarding officer at their national governing body.
Secondly, it is the safeguarding standard England Golf will promote to all their affiliated clubs to ensure all clubs provide a safe and positive experience to children and young people whilst playing golf. The PGA are also using the standards to apply to all their PGA professional coaches.
Adult Safeguarding – ensuring appropriate policies and procedures are in place to create a safe and welcoming environment.
