‘More Vardy than Vardon’ – using the power of football to help more young people ‘Get into Golf’!
As Euro 2016 hits fever pitch, the Golf Foundation hosted its own StreetGolf Championship at 3 Hammers Golf Complex near Wolverhampton. Youngsters from community golf programmes across 16 Premier League and Championship football clubs wore their favourite teams’ football strips to compete for the coveted title of National StreetGolf Champions. Congratulations to the 'Cardiff Two' team who won with a brilliant all-round performance!
Mixing ‘Rory with Ronaldo’ – thanks to a partnership with Premier League 4 Sport (PL4S), Sport England and Get into Golf, the Foundation has developed StreetGolf as an exciting new initiative for teenagers which introduces them to golf in their own community before providing the opportunity to play at the local golf club with help from the resident and junior-friendly PGA Professional Coach.
For most golfers scoring a hole-in-one is like England beating Germany on penalties – a lifetime goal but highly unlikely! Georgia Smith, aged 13, of Wood Green School in Witney, Oxfordshire, achieved this feat playing in the Golf Foundation’s second National StreetGolf Championship Final at the 3 Hammers Golf Complex, near Wolverhampton, on Wednesday (15th June).
