Golfers, clubs and counties all over England have given tremendous support to the 2021 Rainbow Laces campaign.
Staff and volunteers have also thrown their weight behind the initiative to encourage LGBTQ+ people to enjoy our sport.
From Wooler Golf Club in Northumberland to Radnor Golf and Leisure in Cornwall and at all points of the compass in between these venues, the message behind the Rainbow Laces campaign has been front and centre.
From everyone at England Golf, a big ‘thank you’ goes out to all those people and organisations who continue to rally behind our call to make the game more inclusive.
If you missed any of the Rainbow Laces content around this campaign you can find links here to the BBC’s LGBT Sports Podcast interviews with:
- Girls in Golf Society / Irons Golf Society
- Former England Golf international, star of the LPGA Tour and Solheim Cup winner Mel Reid
- England Golf’s Gemma Hunter and her wife Andrea Murray
At England Golf, we are proud that our Course Planner – defining our strategy for 2021-2025 – sets out our inclusive ambitions for the game and we are delighted to support the Rainbow Laces campaign.
This helps to increase the visibility of our sport and the opportunities for LGBTQ+ people to get into or get back to golf.
If you have any questions on the campaign or with regards to any matters affecting the LGBTQ+ community and golf, then please contact Jamie Blair, our diversity and inclusion manager, by emailing email@example.com
