England Golf as our National Governing Body want everyone to have a safe, fun experience in golf. That’s why they have launched the SafeGolf accreditation for affiliated clubs and facilities, a process designed to enable clubs, through easily accessible documents and templates, to ensure they are delivering a safe environment for the sport to be played in.

The SafeGolf accreditation process will become part of the England Golf affiliation process from January 2021. It’s also important to note that county bodies must also achieve SafeGolf accreditation and we in the Cornwall Golf Union are working towards this accreditation.
