Congratulations to Bill Bond on his eagle yesterday on the 5th.
We are delighted to announce that our newly rennovated clubhouse is now open! We are running a limited food menu during these times.
We would love for you to come down and experience the newly renovated course. There has been an incredible amount of work completed on the course during the lockdown period and we are excited to be able to show it off. The members reviews have been fantastic and the appreiation shown by you all has touched our hearts.
We are currently accepting new 5 day memberships.
In other news, we have been awarded the national SafeGolf club accreditation from England Golf.
This demonstrates the clubs commitment to safeguarding children and young people, as well as adults in risk in the sport of golf. Promoting equality and diversity, encouraging others to come along through the club’s commitment to Women in Golf and similarly our commitment to increase both the membership of boys and girls through our new club equity action plan. We have made major improvements to the course and clubhouse and will continue to provide a first-class facility to members and visitors.
Our president Tommy Tulk who led the club’s push to SafeGolf, said: "Long Sutton Golf Club is a great club, it’s very friendly, welcoming, and forward-thinking. This award helps us to spread that message and to tell people that children are safe and secure here and that we understand about beginner golfers.”
The award was presented to Long Sutton Golf Club by Natalie McColl, England Golf’ Club Support Officer. “I’m delighted that Long Sutton has achieved SafeGolf and that its efforts to grow the game can be nationally recognised.”
The SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies committed to promoting a safe and positive environment for all those participating, working, and volunteering in the sport of golf. The SafeGolf partnership consists of members from the golfing bodies across Great Britain & Ireland and has been established to help golf respond to the issue of child protection in sport. Its mission is to safeguard the welfare of children and young people, as well as adults at risk, in the sport of golf.
SafeGolf is firstly, a website – www.safegolf.org – through which anyone with a concern about the welfare of a player, or the behaviour or practice of a coach, volunteer, organiser, parent or a player, can contact the lead safeguarding officer at their national governing body.
Secondly, it is the safeguarding standard England Golf will promote to all their affiliated clubs to ensure all clubs provide a safe and positive experience to children and young people whilst playing golf. The PGA are also using the standards to apply to all their PGA professional Coaches.
These are exciting time for us all and we look forward to a positive future here at Long Sutton.
