In 2002, Sport England introduced Clubmark as a way of recognising junior-friendly sports clubs and facilities. Golf's accreditation is GolfMark, and any club affiliated to EGU/EWGA may apply.
The NCGP encourages clubs to apply for the GolfMark because it is important for clubs to have all the necessary child protection in place. Development grants are only available to clubs with the GolfMark, and NCGP development initiatives will always use GolfMark accredited clubs where possible. For further information about GolfMark and how to apply, please visit the GolfMark website
County Development Officer Ryan Jensen will work with your club to put procedures in place and help collect evidence to show the good practice your club is already doing.
Northumberland's GolMark clubs are:
*Alnmouth (Foxton Hall) GC
*Berwick upon Tweed (Goswick) GC
*City of Newcastle GC
*Close House GC
