Bexleyheath - SafeGolf Accreditation

All golf clubs in the UK are required to be ‘SafeGolf’ accredited by end of March 2021 in order maintain association with England Golf and the World Handicap System.

To achieve this, clubs must demonstrate they have all the policies, procedures, training, checks and personnel in place to fulfil England Golf Safeguarding and Welfare requirements.
Approximately 10 clubs in Kent have achieved the accreditation so far and Bexleyheath is now ready to join the list.

At the moment I have taken the role of Welfare Officer – but we will advertise amongst the membership once we are back to some form of normality.

What is SafeGolf?

SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies committed to promoting a safe and positive environment for all those participating, working and volunteering in the sport of golf.

The SafeGolf partnership consists of members from the golfing bodies across Great Britain & Ireland and has been established to help golf respond to the issue of child protection in sport. Its mission is to safeguard the welfare of children and young people, as well as adults at risk, in the sport of golf.

SafeGolf is firstly, a website – www.safegolf.org – through which anyone with a concern about the welfare of a player, or the behaviour or practice of a coach, volunteer, organiser, parent or a player, can contact the lead safeguarding officer at their national governing body.

Secondly, it is the safeguarding standard England Golf will promote to all their affiliated clubs to ensure all clubs provide a safe and positive experience to children and young people whilst playing golf.

The PGA are also using the standards to apply to all their PGA professional Coaches.

Please find attached our Safeguarding Policy for both Children & Young People and Adults. Both policies will be on the notice boards in the foyer.

Please note that you can take free relief from any tractor/vehicle mark's on the course at present. Also, we have removed the drop zone on the 5/14th and you will now need to play the ball as it lies if you land on the 6/15th tee. Paul Matthews - Greens Committee
