England Golf Trust receives £1k boost

Cheque presented to organisation following championship

By ECG Newsdesk

The England Golf Trust, which supports young people in financial need to play golf, has received a £1,000 boost from the Club Team Championship.

A proportion of the entry fees for the England Golf Championship was earmarked for the Trust and a cheque was subsequently presented to chairman Di Horsley after the final at Frilford Heath Golf Club in Oxfordshire.

The final, involving mixed club teams from all over the country, was the first event of England Golf Week, which celebrates handicap golf.


“This is fantastic,” said Di, who received the cheque from England Golf President-elect John Williams.

“It’s very nice that this contribution comes from club players and that it will be going back to help young people play at grass roots level.”

The England Golf Trust was launched last year to provide grants and bursaries for young men and women in education or aged up to 21. It replaced and extended the work of the former EWGA Trust.

This year, the Trust has made 29 grants worth £9,200, with 12 going to boys. In October, it will also award three bursaries, including the new England Golf Bursary which is available to both male and female applicants, in or entering full-time education at a higher or further education college or university, studying for a golf related qualification.

Two other bursaries, the Uzielli and Bellamy Bursaries, are available to women only.
