Get Into Golf
Golf is a sport for everyone and provides not only a sporting challenge but a great way to keep fit. It is low impact and whether you spend time on the range, playing out on the course or working on your short game there is something for everyone. It is also a great way to socialise and be active with your friends.
If you are looking to get active again then you can find low cost starter lessons through the Get into Golf website. Lessons are organised in groups of 4 to 8 allowing you to meet other new golfers and learn together under the tuition of a qualified PGA Professional coach.
England Golf are working to support golf clubs to offer welcoming and open environments to get started in the game regardless of your impairment.
We are creating a network of disability focussed clubs, offering opportunities to start, progress and develop within the game. If you have an impairment and would like to get into golf, contact our Disability Manager Jamie Blair to find out what opportunities there are for you within your County.
HSBC Golf Roots Centres – Golf Foundation
Golf Roots was introduced in 2003 to provide opportunities for children and young people in areas where golf had not previously been see as an option. The project has now evolved into the largest and most successful junior golf development project in the British Isles.
The Golf Foundation’s work is based on the ‘Skills for Life’ concept which promotes the idea that children and young people are able to develop not only playing skills, but also personal skills (such as honesty and respect) through the Foundation’s initiatives (including Tri-Golf and Golf Xtreme)
‘Skills for Life’ is delivered through the Golf Foundation's national project - ‘HSBC Golf Roots’ - which includes community activity in schools and clubs. HSBC's support for the project was announced in July 2011.
To find your local HSBC Golf Roots Centre please visit the Golf Foundation website.
