Vanessa Salem, PE Teacher, Warlingham Secondary School

“Over the last year, Community Golf has provided our students with various golfing opportunities, engaging them with the game and challenging some of the stereotypical attitudes. We have also been able to benefit those sixth formers who are studying sport to understand first hand the pathways into the profession and how they can progress.

All the students who have been involved in the various golf projects have really enjoyed the experience and had great fun.”
