Golf Mark Accreditation
Mon 05 Aug 2013
During the last 6 months the owners assisted by Club Pro, Craig Watson and Junior Organiser Mike Dyke have applied for and obtained the Golf Mark Accreditation from England Golf.
So what does Golf Mark mean for the club and its members? well let me try and explain.
Golf Mark is a national scheme that identifies and recognises junior and beginner friendly golf facilities and is open to any club affiliated to England Golf. Cambridge Meridian is the sixth club in the County to achieve the award and the first privately owned one. The three key areas within the club that are assessed are:-
- Coaching and Playing
- Club Environment (Equity & Ethics)
- Child Protection and Duty of care
The accreditation recognises the work we as a club have put in place with our juniors and golfing beginners over a number of years. The benefits are great for all, but through this we offer new and young golfers a fun, enjoyable, welcoming and structured environment in which to develop as a player and as a person. It will allow access to appropriate levels of coaching and competi-tion and create a pathway into adult membership. It also opens up funding avenues which can be of benefit to all of us. That said this is only the start, we have to continue to improve and I am sure we will.
None of this could have been achieved without the support of the owners and all the members of the club—It is something we can all be proud of.
