StreetGolf has been designed by young people for young people
StreetGolf Clubs are golf specific clubs that have been developed as a unique way of attracting and retaining young people (age 14-18) in golf. They are funded and supported by Sport England’s satellite club programme. PGA Coaches are at the heart of each StreetGolf Club, delivering adapted and informal activities in a community setting and then supporting young people through the transition to the golf club.
- Key national partner: Premier League 4 Sport, who can provide access to professional football clubs and may offer extra funding
- Key local partner: County Sport, who may provide top-up funding for coaching and equipment
- Training workshop: £250 for up to 20 people or £25 per person
A portable bag of equipment is available and suitable for a variety of community settings, which includes the safe but versatile ‘Almost Golf’ ball.
Resources for Leaders and Coaches
All teachers, leaders and coaches attending a StreetGolf training workshop will receive a comprehensive resource manual designed by young people to showcase example activities and to stimulate new ideas for delivery.
Young people are encouraged to design their own competitions using local community venues such as parks and multi-use games areas. Opportunities may also be provided at local golf courses and driving ranges to take part in a variety of events.
