The England Golf Partnership (EGP) has notified all County Golf Partnerships (CGPs) the available funding to support their development work for the next four years, 2009 to 2013.

Through the Whole Sport Plan for Golf, the EGP has been awarded £12.85 million by Sport England to invest in grass roots golf and a significant amount of this investment been allocated to CGPs.

Over £1.8 million has been assigned to CGPs over the next four years specifically to support the implementation of each Partnership’s development plan and the appointment of County Development Officers to support the delivery of this activity. Combined with monies obtainable through the EGP Coach Development and Club & Coach initiatives a total of almost £4 million is available for CGPs to access.

CGPs are fundamental to Golf’s ‘Grow the Game’ vision and this major funding award highlights the importance placed on their role by the EGP and Sport England.

The funding will support those CGP activities that will ultimately contribute to the specific outcomes identified within the Golf’s Whole Sport Plan 2009 to 2013.

There are currently 31 partnerships in England. Details of their activity, achievements and individual websites can be found on the EGP website
