What Is GolfMark?
GolfMark has now been re-launched and updated to better meet golf club requirements in today’s challenging commercial landscape.
The updated programme will have an increased focus on improving business practices and development while also supporting the delivery of the club priorities within the forthcoming England Golf Strategic Plan 2014-2017.
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.
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.
Further information regarding the re-launch will be available shortly. All clubs awarded GolfMark on the current scheme will retain their status until they are due for re-assessment.
