GolfMark is a 3 year national accreditation that has been designed to support all golf clubs, however big or small to achieve distinct operating standards in four areas of a club’s business activity;
> Recruitment & Retention– supporting your club to attract new members and increase the participation of existing members
> Management & Sustainability– helping to develop your club through practical business planning
> Coaching & Competitions– enhancing coaching and playing opportunities at your club for all golfers
> Safeguarding– ensuring your club has appropriate policies and procedures in place
Golf clubs will be asked to meet a number of ‘essential requirements’ in the four areas which are a set of standards which are aligned to Sport England’s Clubmark criteria and will be maintained annually by golf clubs through an annual action plan. Golf clubs will also be able to work on GolfMark ‘High Performing areas’ which are not essential to achieve GolfMark, but are areas which England Golf believe will further benefit a golf clubs operations and support in their future development.
