Create a welcoming and friendly atmosphere for new golfers

Golf Buddies

Volunteer Buddies are a great way for your golf club to welcome new golfers and help them easily integrate with your current membership.

Creating a friendly atmosphere for new golfers or members is hugely important – and everyone at your club has a part to play.

You shouldn’t just rely on the hard-working professional staff as they might not always have the time to spare. A word from a friendly member and fellow golfer can also help to break the ice.

Introducing a volunteer buddy system takes this a step further. Buddies can provide the necessary comfort and advice to someone new to your club as they get into the swing of things.

There are a number of ways we can help golf clubs looking to set up a Golf Buddy Initiative:

  • Recruitment support
  • Editable posters
  • Role descriptions
  • Role guidance
  • Provision of a buddy workshop


Golf Heroes E-Learning

We also have a Free Golf Heroes E-Learning Course if your club doesn’t have enough buddies to run a workshop. It’s an interactive session that will encourage you to think about how you can make a difference in your club.

The session takes about 45 minutes to complete and is FREE of charge. Use the code volunteers and the information will be sent directly to your inbox. Find out more about the training course below:
