Independent Charity to Support Young Golfers of all Ages and Abilities
England Golf Trust is an independent charity and was founded in 1982 as the English Ladies Golf Association Trust. It later became the England Golf Trust in 2015, and a registered charity, as part of the merger with the England Golf Union and the English Women’s Golf Association.
It provides financial support to young golfers across England from disadvantaged and financially challenged backgrounds so that they can continue and develop their game.
The Trust aims to make a difference to the lives of young people who might leave the sport or fail to reach their full potential without support from the charity.
Run by volunteer trustees, the EGT awards grants, bursaries and equipment to worthy young golfers of all ages and abilities so that they can continue playing and developing in the game. The awards can be used for golf essentials, such as coaching, equipment, clubs membership, competition fees and travel costs.
Three times a year the Trust awards the England Golf Trust Grant, the Disability Grant and a set of PING Prodi G Clubs. It awards the England Golf Trust and Angela Uzielli bursaries annually.
In 2016 the England Golf Trust introduced the Young Ambassador Programme to help young golfers to develop life and social skills. It’s a fulfilling role that our ambassadors enjoy, and their responsibilities vary from helping with events to promoting the Trust. Many also help juniors at their club by supporting the PGA professional with coaching sessions.
The trust does not receive any public funding, so everything it does is made possible by a network of generous individuals and organisations.
