At WGC we want all children and adults to enjoy playing golf in a safe environment. To support this we have committed to become a “SafeGolf ” accredited club. The SafeGolf accreditation process will become part of the England Golf affiliation process from April 2021.
SafeGolf 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. This will be 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.
Please find attached copies of our Adult and Child Safeguarding policies, copies of which will also be displayed on the club noticeboard. If you have any questions or concerns please direct them to the Club Welfare Officer:
