CLUB CAPTAINS DOING THEIR BIT FOR THE FUTURE

Partnership announced between captains and the Golf Foundation

The England Golf Captains programme has chosen to support the Golf Foundation as its nominated charity this year.
The programme is now encouraging its membership to back the Golf Foundation with fundraising donations and thus play a key role in helping to secure the future of the game.

The message is that support from more captains can help the Golf Foundation to ensure that more young people from all backgrounds can enjoy the benefits of golf.

This includes reaching 500,000 boys and girls each year through the sport, starting in schools and communities, before encouraging more young people to play at
club level and find a game for
life.

Last year, for the first time, over 50,000 youngsters were introduced to a golf club through the Golf Foundation’s programmes and 3,400 became members.

Contributions via annual ‘Captain’s Charities’ will mean more young people can experience golf thanks to the proven programmes of the Golf Foundation such as Tri-Golf and GolfSixes League, thus protecting the game in the years ahead.

Vanessa Bell, head of fundraising for the Golf Foundation, said: “We are hugely grateful for any donations made from golf club captains. We are also very much aware that captains have local and national charities they wish to support and, of course, we want them to continue to do so.

“However, we also want captains to play as much a part, as they feel able, to inspire and encourage the next generation into the sport, so any contributions they can make are welcomed. This will make a massive difference.”

Sam Czornyj, England Golf membership marketing manager, said: “We are pleased to continue working closely with the Golf Foundation and to offer our captains this opportunity to support grass roots golf. We hope that the England Golf Captains will get behind this fantastic cause.”
