ClubGolf provides clubs with school to club links, structured coaching pathway and development opportunities for volunteer coaches as well as PGA professionals!
Part of Scotland’s successful Ryder Cup bid, ClubGolf was born out of the Scottish Government’s pledge to introduce every child in Scotland to golf by age nine.
Getting your club ready
There are some minimum requirements that your club will have to meet before starting to deliver the programme.
These requirements are essential and very much help to:
- ensure the safety and enjoyment of the junior ClubGolfers
- guarantee consistent, quality coaching and suitable facilities for delivery
- make sure that your programme is a success for your club
There are a few things which you'll need to consider with your committee, which you'll find here.
A few stats
Since its launch in 2003 ClubGolf has seen over 350,000 children introduced to golf at school. Over 12% of those children then transition through to stage one coaching at one of 330 ClubGolf delivery centres across Scotland.
Volunteer Coaches and PGA Pros
ClubGolf delivery consists of three stages which form part of the Scottish Golf player pathway.
The early stages of these programmes depend on a large volunteer workforce, and more than 1,500 volunteer coaches, have been trained and qualified through the PGA Coach Education System.
PGA Pros are encouraged to take part in all stages of the programme and are essential in the delivery of the thrid stage, the Scottish Golf Development Centre programme.
ClubGolf in Partnership
ClubGolf regional staff work in partnership with local authorities and Active Schools to deliver the introductory programme in primary schools, and with golf clubs and facilities to deliver the three stages which comprise the ClubGolf core skills programme.
ClubGolf offers recommended equipment, coaching materials and ongoing support to participating centres. Our inclusive approach means we also work with golf clubs and facilities that offer or promote other development programmes which fit broadly with the ClubGolf goals and the player pathway.
ClubGolf has enjoyed a phenomenal 10 years and we can't wait to see what's next!
