Governance

England Golf (EG) is the recognised National Governing Body for men’s and women’s amateur golf in England. In that capacity, it receives funds not only from playing members of golf clubs by way of affiliation fees but also from Sport England and commercial sponsors to assist it to advance its Purpose.

England Golf is a company limited by guarantee with its Voting Members being the county bodies. Clubs and individual golfers are non-voting members.

The England Golf Board is responsible for the direction and oversight of England Golf on behalf of all Members (as defined in the Articles of Association and Rules) and is accountable for all aspects of EG’s activities including the allocation of resources. The Board manages its responsibilities in accordance with a Governance Framework and has, in addition, agreed to comply with the Code for Sports Governance. It delegates the day to day running of the company to an Executive led by the Chief Executive Officer.

In December 2016, the England Golf Board agreed to adopt the Purpose “growing the game of golf in England”. In January 2016, the England Golf Board adopted five organisational Values:

1. Be Honest – acting with integrity, trust, fairness, reliability and transparency
2. Be Supportive – working together to make golf better for everyone, inspiring people to achieve their goals
3. Be Excellent – continuously improving, exceeding expectations and setting high standards
4. Be Responsible – being personally accountable and passionate about driving a strong future for golf
5. Be Inclusive – welcoming and enabling everyone to be involved with golf in England.
