GOLFMARK HIGH ACHIEVER

The club’s junior activities have been recognised by England Golf by the award of GolfMark High Achiever Award.  This is an accolade awarded only to those clubs which can demonstrate that they meet the highest standards for the care and development of junior golfers.  The award means that the club has access to grant support which is used to offer free coaching both for juniors and adult beginners.

Benefits for Golfers:

  • A structured environment in which to develop as a player and a person.
  • A fun, enjoyable, welcoming environment.
  • Access to appropriate levels of coaching and competition.
  • To be part of a game that will teach them respect, social & life skills, discipline, honesty, integrity, motivation and much more.
  • Creating a structured pathway into adult membership.

 

"Lilley Brook has also been recognised by the Golf Foundation as one of the few approved Golf Roots Centres in the County"

Golf RootsGolf Roots

As an accepted Golf Roots Centre we have made a commitment to ensure that all coaching staff and volunteers working with children and young people should have attended a Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop and gained police clearance from the Criminal Records Bureau.  These facilities also have a child protection policy.

Golf Roots helps clubs to actively engage with the community through work with individual schools, school sport partnerships, young people's organisations and local authorities. It also provides a young person with an introduction to a club or golf facility and the opportunity to progress through the national learning programme, the Junior Golf Passport.

The aim of maintaining a network of Golf Roots Centres is to:

  • Increase the number of young people playing the sport and, therefore secure its long term future.
  • Enable more young people to try the game in their school or community environment.
  • Enable young people to try the game in a welcoming club or facility environment at little or no cost where the child is put first.
  • Make the young person's introduction to golf a fun and safe experience.
  • Ensure that beginners receive expert tuition on the basic skills and swing technique delivered through an emphasis on learning through games and activities.
  • Teach beginners the principal rules and etiquette of the game.
  • Provide young players with the opportunity to progress through the Junior Golf Passport to a level where they can play 18 holes in 110 shots or better.
  • Strengthen the links between clubs, schools and the wider community.
