Situation

We break down the barriers to golf by changing perceptions of the sport by introducing the game in a FUN, INSPIRING and INNOVATIVE way. Our focus is on a diverse and inclusive approach to young people and children, from all walks of life and backgrounds. With evidence linking golf, health, and mental well-being, our activities offer physical exercise, real unmediated person-to-person interaction, and a window on the world that allows for healthy competition, activity, and socialising.

Solution

We work closely with schools, community groups, and clubs by providing adapted equipment, training workshops, resources, grants, competitions, all fully supported by our team of Regional Development Officers. The strength of the Golf Foundation is our ability to work in collaboration with key strategic partnerships at a national level and the with local delivery groups more locally which allows us the flexibility of project delivery and true alignment to the needs of the local community.

  • The Golf Foundation has a reputation for having a deep commitment to providing fun learning experiences in golf. It has always been a mark of their distinction that they are committed to helping young people in building the skills for life that they promote so passionately.

  • Without your help and funding, we would never have been able to attend sports festivals where we give hundreds of primary school children the opportunity to give golf a go.
