Golf Club Governance

England Golf is keen to work with and support clubs to ensure good governance within their organisational structure and strategic planning.


England Golf, in partnership with the Scottish Golf, Wales Golf, GCMA, PGA and NGCAA has produced a Club Governance Guide for Golf Clubs which includes detailed guidance on these areas. It also provides information on the structure and running of a management committee, role descriptions and associated resources. This guide is available in the right hand section of this page. 

England Golf can also provide information, advice and templates for clubs considering incorporation or reviewing their governance structure. It is important to note that if your club is not incorporated your club officers and their assets can be put at personal risk.

England Golf recommends that all clubs incorporate. England Golf offers advice on the benefits of incorporation, the process and guidance on how to become a company limited by guarantee, information about alternative company or charity structures and example Articles of Association.

For more information your support with your club governance please contact your Regional Manager. Contact details can be found here.
