What is SafeGolf?
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 to help golf respond to the issue of child protection 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.

Andi Turner who led the club’s push to SafeGolf, said: “This award helps us to spread that message and to tell people that children are safe and secure here and can enjoy their golf at a great club that is friendly, welcoming and forward-thinking”

With thanks to the Cadet Officers, Cadet helpers and Our PGA Coach Ken Light who have worked tirelessly to made this happen.
