It’s always great to read stories of Junior Golf successes and having read that ‘Golf is more popular in schools than football’ is good news for the future of the game.


Following an olympic year, golf is the second most popular sport in schools to athletics.  On top of this a recent England Golf report said that two-thirds of all English golf clubs have links with local schools, showing the growth in popularity and support behind golf making it a sport fit for future generations.

The report from the golf foundation highlights how their grass roots programme is helping improve the quality of PE in schools. Although the Inter-Club committee don’t donate funds directly to the Golf Foundation – we donate your entry fee directly to your county and association junior sections – It’s encouraging to see the framework for supporting junior golf at grass roots is ever growing through both schools and clubs.
