WHY?

We go directly into the community and support changing perceptions of what playing golf as an activity means.

Community Golf delivers a diverse range of golf activation programmes to inspire people of all ages and abilities to get involved in activity, using golf as the vehicle. Golf is a low intensity activity with a low MET rate that can fit and suit the needs of most people (The relationships between golf and health: a scoping review).

Everything we do at Community Golf is designed to have a positive impact, by taking away the traditional barriers to participation associated with playing at a golf club. Community Golf’s vision has the belief that there should be no barriers so that everyone has the opportunity to play golf and access the health and social benefits the sport provides.

 

“Community golf creates a socially acceptable environment where learners from dynamically diverse backgrounds come together to compete fairly and enjoy themselves”.
