GolfMark awardIver Golf Club has been awarded GolfMark accreditation demonstrating their hard work and dedication to both junior and beginner’s golf.

England Golf developed the GolfMark award to identify and acknowledge golf facilities in England that were junior and beginner friendly

The GolfMark award also integrates Sport England’s Clubmark award – a national standard for quality sports clubs recognised across the country. More than 30 other sports, including tennis and rugby are also using the alliance to add value to their accreditation schemes and over 10,000 sports clubs have been awarded Clubmark or are working towards achieving accreditation.

There are a number of benefits that golf clubs can gain by achieving GolfMark accreditation, including increased membership, raising the club’s profile, further development of coaches and volunteers and greater access to funding.

GolfMark evaluates golf clubs on the following three areas within their junior section:

  • Coaching & Playing
  • Club Environment, including sports equity and ethics
  • Child Protection & Duty of Care

England Golf Development Officers continually conduct assessment meetings, offering advice and guidance to golf clubs on how to further enhance their junior sections and beginners initiatives as well as develop best practices.

Further information on GolfMark and a list of all GolfMark clubs can be found on the GolfMark website, www.golfmark.org , or by contacting England Golf.

The GolfMark award is an initiative jointly provided via the England Golf Partnership’s ‘Whole Sport Plan’ for golf.
