Golf is a sport that can be played together by people of all ages and abilities and from 2016 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!
The County Golf Partnership 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:

Get into Golf is the national campaign to inspire adults to take up golf and to play more often. The campaign is run by England Golf through its network of County Golf Partnerships and supported by Sport England National Lottery funding.
It doesn’t matter whether you’ve never played golf or if you haven’t picked up a club since your school days or an almost-forgotten holiday. You can get started by taking advantage of the low cost golf taster sessions and beginner courses on offer.
You’ll receive a basic introduction to golf from PGA professionals, together with information about club membership and follow-on coaching opportunities. Equipment will be provided so all you have to do is turn up on the day in comfortable clothing.
There’s no better sport for bringing people together and with its winning combination of exercise, sporting skill and social interaction, golf is the perfect tonic for good health and happiness.
This increasingly popular sport is a powerhouse of all the core ingredients that doctors recommend for optimum physical and mental health and wellbeing.
