Promotes coaching and playing opportunities to disabled people

Promoting existing sessions to disabled people

Through the Get into golf website you can upload activity by category. There is an option to list activity for disabled people, meaning you can promote your junior, womens or mens sessions through an additional channel.

You can also create an inclusive mix of images on your marketing material. There are images available through the Irongate system to produce your get into golf materials


Being an inclusive club means offering the choice to disabled people to take part in existing activity or to take part in a disability specific session.

Some disabled people will want to take part in a disability specific session. Again you can list these on the Get into golf website and promote through your local channels

Have a look at how the School of Golf at Little Channels, Essex worked with the City of Chelmsford Mencap to set up activity. 

 


Finding groups to work with and to promote to

  • Have you looked at the charities your club and/or captains have raised money for? - many of these will have supported disabled people
  • Speak to your disability or inclusion lead at your local county sports partnership - your Club Support Officer can assist
  • Look at the community boards at local supermarkets - there are lots of groups who could benefit from knowing about what you offer
  • Attend local community days and build links with a range of groups

Using your website

Having a dedicated page on your website that local disabled people and disabled peoples groups can use to find out more about the game is vital.

  • Make sure you optimise this so that people searching for disability sport or disability activities will find your page
  • Make sure you explain that there is a choice between attending a disability specific session or just any of the activities that you run
  • Use videos and images so that disabled people can be reassured about what they will get up to when they attend and so that they can see people like themselves taking part

This is a great place to highlight your pledge as an inclusive club

England Golf has a range of videos on our Youtube Channel which you can use on your site or on social media channels to promote
