Golf is a sport that can be played together by people of all ages and abilities and from 2020 will once again be played at the Olympics. It can be played at social, competitive, amateur or professional levels, with other people in a group or on your own. It can be a great way of meeting new people, for families to participate in a sport together and also for getting out in the fresh air!
England Golf Staffordshire brings together the three county-level golf associations (the Staffordshire Ladies County Golf Association, the Staffordshire Union of Golf Clubs and the Staffordshire PGA), creating one voice towards developing the future of golf in Staffordshire. It brings national initiatives and resources to the county to lead where necessary and bolster the efforts of the individual associations, clubs and facilities.
The core objectives are as follows:

At England Golf, we truly believe that this is a game for everyone. That’s why we’ve launched Get into Golf. We want to inspire more people to give it a go and enjoy golf by offering low-cost or free beginner activities at clubs across England. Once you try golf we think you’ll want to learn more. We’ve created three types of activity so everyone of any ability has a place to start. Taster Sessions are ideal for those who have never swung a club before. Beginner Courses start teaching key skills and Improver Courses get people ready to step out on the course.
Get into Golf is making a difference. In the last four years over 180,000 people have taken part in activities and more than 22,000 have joined golf clubs. Over 700 clubs in England now offer Get into Golf activities. If your local club doesn’t have any activities on offer then get in touch with them. They’ll probably have some kind of beginner activity available.
This website is where it all starts. It’s a place for beginners and improvers to find and easily book activities across the country.
We’re ready when you are. Everyone’s welcome, so let’s Get into Golf together.
Golf clubs, ranges, centres and other facilities wanting to be part of Get into Golf and upload their activities should email us at email@example.com. Alternatively contact your local Club Support Officer for help.
