England Golf Strategic Plan
England Golf is currently undertaking the development of a new and ambitious strategic plan, which will enable us to build on the recent merger, deliver the outcomes within the Whole Sport Plan agreement with Sport England and build on the excellent work which is taking place to develop golf at all levels all around the country.
It will address some of the challenges the sport is facing and present ways to maximise some of the opportunities that are also in front of us.
It will be a plan that should inform the future work of the board, committees and staff of England Golf, the county unions, associations and county golf partnerships, the clubs and volunteers. It will also help to shape the way we work with national and local partners including but not limited to golf course owners and managers, county sports partnerships and other local partners.
This plan is being developed in consultation with our national partners and the many stakeholders that make up England Golf. In the first phase of consultation there were over 500 responses made via an electronic survey and these responses showed overwhelming support for the development of this plan:
- 94% of respondents felt it was important or very important for there to be a single plan for England Golf
- 89% of respondents said they were likely or very likely to play their role in its delivery.
Further consultation has also taken place at a national and 40 county workshops.
As a result of this initial consultation the second draft of the plan is now available and can be downloaded from the link at the top of this page.
The second draft presents an emerging direction of the new strategy for England Golf (2014-2017) and will:
- Propose the purpose and vision for England Golf
- Identify four ambitions (or strategic goals)
- Outline nine action plans
- Present action plan frameworks for counties and clubs
- Examine how this plan could be delivered and measured
- Explore how its delivery can be funded
The consultation period for this second draft of the Strategic Plan for England Golf 2014-2017 will run from mid-November 2013 to 13 January 2014. We wish to continue the feedback process and would value your responses to this second draft of the strategic plan.
Responses can be made via our online survey, the link to this survey can be found at the top of this page.
