Golf At Goodwood is delighted to announce that it has been nominated for awards in two prestigious categories at the Club Mirror Awards 2018, Golf Club of the Year and Business Initiative of the Year.

Golf At Goodwood nominated in two categories at the Club Mirror Awards 2018
The annual Club Mirror Awards sees the UK’s top clubs from all industries come together to celebrate the best in the business. Golf At Goodwood, having also won Most Welcoming Club at the England Golf Awards earlier this year, is being recognised for its initiatives into promoting both women and juniors in the sport, helping to secure future players and members.
Golf At Goodwood has encouraged juniors into golf in a multitude of ways; the club hosts well subscribed junior camps during the school holidays as well as free demos for those new to the sport. During term time children over five can take part in an after-school ‘Level Up’ Junior Golf Coaching Programme, motivating children by rewarding them for progression through 10 levels with a prize at the end. All of these initiatives have resulted in 60% of the Sussex Junior Union being members at Golf At Goodwood.
Stuart Gillett, General Manager of Golf At Goodwood, said: “When we did a focus group with parents, they said a barrier to golf for kids was the rules and dress codes. We don’t have any of those – they have fun! Golf as a sport has changed its image in the last 10 years. You have to give people easier access to golf. We are delighted that the work we have done to encourage more young people to take up the game has been recognised by these nominations, especially as the Club Mirror Awards transcend golf.”
Golf At Goodwood are proud to support and develop the talent and enthusiasm of junior golfers.
