The Scottish Golf Charity
The Scottish Golf Charity was established in 2013 with the aim of raising funds for and supporting three activities: increased participation within golf in Scotland, particularly among young people; improved education opportunities for promising young golfers and club managers, and environmental best practice and projects at Scotland’s golf courses.
Funding has already supported Scotland’s national junior golf programme, ClubGolf, a world class development initiative and lasting legacy to the 2014 Ryder Cup in Gleneagles. Since its launch in 2003, ClubGolf has now introduced the game to over 400,000 children, many experiencing a club in their hands for the first time, delivered by over 1,700 volunteer coaches in over 320 golf clubs nationwide. Our aim is to build on its success by encouraging more adults to play the game via Get into Golf and ultimately get more families playing our wonderful sport together.
In addition, we endeavour to educate and develop those children showing promise in the sport, so they can realise their full potential as both golfers and people, as well investing in the training of club managers, which is vital in ensuring that our clubs can flourish and provide the best experience possible for members and visitors alike.
Finally, the charity will fund our pioneering advisory service on best environmental practice for golf courses, to help us combat climate change and sustain our world famous venues for years to come.
Our fundraising activities include the annual Scottish Golf Awards, attended by over 600 guests, while other supporting partners have included the American Scottish Foundation, The Sportsman’s Charity, the Alfred Dunhill Links Foundation and Western Gailes Golf Club.
Our Board of Trustees are: James Christie and Maurice Shields.
