The Trust invests in Young Golfers
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. Over the past 20 years it has helped 170 young golfers through awarding over £123,000.
Grant awards, bursaries and equipment are provided to worthy young golfers of all ages and abilities so that they can continue playing and developing in the game. The financial awards can help them with items that are crucial for their golf career, including coaching, equipment, club membership, competition fees and travel costs.
The grants and equipment are awarded three times a year: these are the England Golf Trust Grant, the Disability Grant and a set of PING Prodi G Clubs. Bursaries are awarded annually: these are the England Golf Trust and Angela Uzielli bursaries. For application form and to apply visit Helping You.
A Young Ambassador Programme is also on offer to help young golfers 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.
A programme of fundraising is key to the Trust’s future. Initiatives include: Trust’s own annual Women’s Stableford Competition, Captains Charity, Run an Event, Gift in your Will and Make a Donation. To find out how you can help visit Supporting Us
The trust does not receive public funding, so everything it does is made possible by a network of generous individuals and organisations. Your support will make a real difference to the lives of young people.
