The club has a Golf Mark Award which is a national scheme that identifies and recognises junior and beginner friendly golf facilities.  The three key areas within the golf club which are assessed are:
Coaching & Playing
Club Environment (including sports equity & ethics)
Child Protection & Duty of Care
We offer free membership to any junior under 16yrs with a parent or grandparent who is a full member of the club. (One junior per parent/grandparent).
Roll-ups - We intend to have a roll-up once a month which will either consist of some range work or playing a few holes.Please contact the Pro-shop to let them know you will be attending.Dates are posted on the Junior Notice Board                      

Safegolf Accreditation - What is SafeGolf?

We are pleased to announce that we have achieved the National Governing Body Safegolf Award on 12th March 2021.
SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies committed to promoting a safe and positive environment for all those participating, working and volunteering in the sport of golf.
The SafeGolf partnership consists of members from the golfing bodies across Great Britain & Ireland and has been established to help golf respond to the issue of child protection in sport. Its mission is to safeguard the welfare of children and young people, as well as adults at risk, in the sport of golf.
SafeGolf is firstly, a website through which anyone with a concern about the welfare of a player, or the behaviour or 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.
