What is SafeGolf?
SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies committed to promoting a safe and positive enviroment for all those participating, working and volunteering in the sport of golf.
The SafeGolf partnership consists of members from the golfing bodies across Great Britain & Ireland and has been established to help golf respond to the issue of child protection in sport. It's mission is to safeguard the welfare of children and young people, as well as adults at risk, in the sport of golf.
SafeGolf is firstly a website www.safegolf.org through which anyone with a concern about the welfare of a player, or behaviour or practice of a coach, volunteer, organiser, parent or a player can contact the lead safeguarding officer at the national governing body.
Secondly, it is the safeguarding standard England Golf will promote to all affiliated clubs to ensure all the clubs provide a safe and positive experience to children and young people whilst playing golf. The PGA are also using the standards to apply to all PGA Professsional Coaches.
