After the DP World Tour started the #GolfForGood project following the Covid-19 pandemic, we saw the impact that our community work can have.
The Golf Foundation has continued to drive this Golf for Good message in recent times, keeping young people and families active and happy through golf, wherever it can be enjoyed. As part of this, our HSBC Golf Roots PLUS funding has been helping awide range of community-based educational, social and health projects, which wish to introduce the life skills benefits of golf to young people.
HSBC Golf Roots PLUS projects (funded by HSBC and The Gerald Micklem Charitable Trust) are a key initiative within the Golf Foundation’s drive to create life changing opportunities for young people using the power of golf.
In recent times, a range of these have supported young people with a disability and/or special educational needs (SEND), or behavioural issues.
Other projects have worked to build the confidence of young people and widen their social opportunities through golf, while offering further local community benefits. These have included charity/local authority led groups in deprived economic areas offering structured and sustainable golf learning for young people who are often very new to the game.
Since its inception in 2020, over 42 organisations have benefited from HSBC Golf Roots PLUS funding, including the Coalfields Regeneration Trust in Wales, Special Olympics Sandwell, the Bath Rugby Community Foundation and Inspired Sports Solutions in Birmingham. Your project could be next.
The application window for 2023 has now closed.
Thanks to support from The R&A, the Golf Foundation was able to offer a golf experience to a whole new audience of young people in Birmingham via its HSBC Golf Roots programme.
