SafeGolf At Dainton Park - An England Golf Accreditation
Dainton Park has been awarded the SafeGolf Accreditation from England Golf for our hard work towards creating a safe environment for children and vulnerable adults to come and enjoy the many benefits golf has to offer.
We have considered our responsibilities to the children participating in golf here at Dainton very carefully and produced a Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy accompanied by strict procedures to mirror the standards we wish to uphold when providing activities and safeguarding the welfare of children and vulnerable adults in our care.
Dainton Park affiliates to England Golf, and our professional golf coaches are members of the Professional Golfers’ Association. The Club also recognises the policies of these Governing Bodies. All of our coaches can be found on the SafeGolf Coaches Register.
We continue to welcome everyone to Dainton and endeavour to make you feel safe when doing so.
What is SafeGolf?
The SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies committed to promoting a safe and positive environment for all those participating, working and volunteering in the sport of golf. It 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. SafeGolf is firstly, a website: www.safegolf.orgthrough which anyone - with a concern about the welfare of a player, or the behaviour or practice of a coach, volunteer, organiser, parent or a player - can contact the lead safeguarding officer at their national governing body. Secondly, it is the safeguarding standard England Golf will promote to all their affiliated clubs to ensure all clubs provide a safe and positive experience to children and young people whilst playing golf. The PGA are also using the standards to apply to all their PGA professional Coaches.
