Buckingham Golf Club located in north Buckinghamshire, which is backing the drive to grow the game, has achieved the SafeGolf club accreditation from England Golf.

The 18-hole course at Buckingham Golf Club is a beautiful parkland design set amongst the rolling hills of the north Buckinghamshire countryside. Our Driving Range features 10 covered bays, offering excellent facilities for members to improve their golf and allowing the Professional’s team to run their coaching sessions in an excellent facility.

The club 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.

Helen Watts, Safeguarding Officer for Buckingham Golf Club said: Buckingham Golf Club is a club, that is passionate about creating a safe place for current and prospective Junior golfers to play golf. This award helps us to spread that message and to tell people that children are safe and secure here and that we understand about beginner golfers.”

Barry Randall, General Manager for Buckingham Golf Club said “I am delighted that we have been awarded such a prestigious accreditation, this award is a significant achievement for the Club and one that we are very proud to have achieved.

“I’d like to thank Helen Watts for the fantastic work she has done on this and I look forward welcoming current and future Juniors on the course when we can get back out there.”

The award was presented to Buckingham Golf Club by Sam Clapham, England Golf’s Club Support Officer for Buckingham Golf Club. “I’m delighted that Buckingham Golf Club has achieved SafeGolf and that its efforts to grow the game can be nationally recognised.”

The 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.
