St Enodoc Golf Club in Cornwall has become the latest UK golf club to have been awarded SafeGolf accreditation by England Golf.
By achieving the requirements demanded by the accreditation, the club has demonstrated its commitment to safeguarding children and young people, as well as adults at risk in the sport of golf.
St Enodoc is well known as the home to the Church Course, a championship links designed by James Braid, and the Holywell Course which is a shorter, less demanding layout that is ideal for both youngsters and newcomers to the game.
Simon Greatorex, St Enodoc’s general manager, said: “As a club we are both pleased and honoured to have achieved SafeGolf status as we pride ourselves in placing emphasis on looking after our younger and potentially vulnerable members and visitors who play our courses and who come to us to take up the game of golf.
“It is all part of making what is one of the oldest clubs in England a welcoming, inclusive and safe environment for everyone in order to encourage golfers to play more and to attract more players to play the game.”
St Enodoc has always promoted the game to children and maintained a strong junior section, run coaching programmes for youngsters and women and has welcomed new members from near and far for many years.
