SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies and golf clubs who are committed to promoting a safe and positive environment for all those participating, working and volunteering in the sport of golf.
SafeGolf consists of members from the golfing bodies across Great Britain & Ireland and was 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, who may be at risk.
This has been achieved through a unique partnership which has the ability to influence and act as advocate for safeguarding across the golfing landscape, developing a consistent approach towards ensuring that all people have a fun, safe and positive experience when playing golf.

Silkstone Golf Club is proud to support these aims, and in conjuction with England Golf, has developed safeguarding policies and procedures in respect of both Children & Young Golfers and Adults alike.

In order to oversee the implementation of SafeGolf and to provide a focal point for any matters relating to safeguarding, the Club has appointed a Club Welfare Officer, whose contact details can be found here: CWO Poster.pdf
We are delighted that Silkstone Golf Club has fully met the standards set by England Golf and has been re-awarded SafeGolf accreditation for the year 2022 to 2023, and in doing so demonstrates our commitment to safeguarding the welfare of children and young people, as well as adults at risk in the sport of golf.
