StarGolf achieves national safeguarding accreditation
StarGolf, which is backing the drive to widen participation in golf, has achieved the SafeGolf club accreditation from England Golf.
StarGolf, the 18-hole course played over nine fairways that is managed by National Star, has just received the SafeGolf accreditation, demonstrating the club’s commitment to safeguarding children and young people, as well as adults in risk in the sport of golf.
New players are being encouraged to try out the course because it is perfect for beginners and those wishing to practise their short game. Value-for-money memberships, as well as the opportunity to pay and play, are available for golfers, young and old.
Pete Johnson, who led the club’s push to SafeGolf, said: ‘StarGolf is a great club, it’s very friendly, welcoming and forward-thinking. This award helps us to tell people that children are safe and secure here and that we understand about beginner golfers.’
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.
