 The English Golf Union and English Women’s Golf Association launched the Junior Golf Mark Award  in 2003 as an accreditation scheme for junior friendly facilities, assessing clubs on the  following three areas:

Coaching and playing
Club environment
Child protection and duty of care

The Golf Mark Award is for the provision of high quality services to junior golfers in terms of  coaching, child protection and equality of opportunity, enabling boys and girls of any age and  ability to participate in golf.

It is proven through statistics collated through Golf Mark surveys that clubs that have been accredited have experienced a 57% increased awareness / recognition of their facility in the  local community, 51% have experienced and increase in membership and 85% have accessed the  additional funding available.

South Bradford Golf Club was awarded the Golf Mark in 2010 and is committed to a sustainable future and its role in offering a  sporting and social experience for all ages through Golf in the local area.  encourages young people to take up the game by offering a safe, welcoming and fun environment and is part of an  overall membership retention plan going forward for all its members.
