The club has been given the national GolfMark accreditation for its work with junior golf
DERBY GOLF CLUB has become the latest Derbyshire club to receive GolfMark accreditation for demonstrating their hard work and dedication to both junior and beginner’s golf.
The GolfMark is a national award developed by England Golf to identify golf facilities in England that are beginner and junior friendly for anyone looking to make a start in the game.
The club has been working in partnership with Derby City Council to provide free membership to juniors up to the age of 16, and it says the award will be proudly displayed at the club, while also providing parents with the reassurance that the needs and safety of children have been thoroughly considered.
David Anderson, the club’s secretary, said: “Derby Golf Club in partnership with Derby City Council are fully committed to developing junior golf in the Derby area, reflecting the enthusiastic and inclusive approach shown by our dedicated team.
“Linda Fryer supports the juniors as junior organiser, and is instrumental in encouraging young golfers of all ages to take up and enjoy the game by organising coaching, matches and fun events.
Nigel Furniss, development officer for the Derbyshire Golf Partnership, added: “Derbyshire Golf would like to congratulate Derby Golf Club, and in particular their junior organiser, Linda Fryer on being awarded GolfMark.
This demonstrates the club’s commitment to encouraging junior golf and creating opportunities.”
