How it works

Under the banner of HSBC Golf Roots we have designed a range of programmes to encourage young people to enjoy learning the game at a junior-friendly golf facility.rnrnWe support clubs to undertake outreach work and then welcome new participants to their venue. Approved HSBC Golf Roots Centres are eligible to apply for grant-aid and the Foundation’s team of Regional Development Officers is available to provide advice on how to link with school and community groups. rnrn

The Golf Foundation believes a strong junior section has many benefits for golf clubs. We want to help facilities to address barriers to participation and improve access for young players. One simple way clubs can improve young golfers is to allow them to play in club competitions and we expect all the clubs we work with to provide these opportunities. If you would like some advice on how to implement this, please speak to your local Regional Development Officer.

HSBC Golf Roots Centres are golf clubs which the Golf Foundation has awarded accredited status as a fun and family friendly junior facility to play golf.  They are at the heart of our charity’s aim to enable more young people to progress from playing golf in school to joining a local golf club.

Our HSBC Golf Roots Centre programme helps golf clubs to introduce a new generation to golf and teach valuable life skills. It also supports PGA Professionals to get the most out of their junior coaching while helping golf clubs to grow their business and secure the future of the game.

To become an HSBC Golf Roots Centre we require clubs to fulfil the following criteria:

• Must employ a workforce of qualified, trained PGA Coaches and a Welfare Officer
• Have in place an up-to-date set of policies and procedures relating to Safeguarding and Child Protection
