Supporting Junior Golf in Your County

0 %
of 2019 Entry Fees Donated to Junior Golf

With your clubs continued support and Taskers UK’s sponsorship we are continuing with our aim to support junior golf in your county into 2021 and beyond. We are able to share many of the junior golf success stories which will continue to develop as a result of this funding and clubs’ participation in the Taskers Trophy Inter-Club

Our aim is to return as much of your teams entry fee to Junior Golf. We do this by donating proportional to the number of teams entered from each county into each competition to County Golf Junior Organisations

From the 2019 Competitions 100% of entry fees were donated to Junior Golf Development

The contribution to junior golf over the last eleven years has raised over circa £170,000 for Junior Golf in and around the Midlands area. Thanks to all the teams participating in the competition over the years. Funds raised have supported Junior Golf in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, Staffordshire, Lancashire*, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire & Rutland.

Each county receiving a proportion of the funds is asked to provide reports and outline plans of how they are using the funding presented from the team’s entry fees; below is the latest reports for each participating county.

Our funding model is simple, we donate your entry fee to junior golf development via the County Golf Organisations and by a small number of direct to club donations for the development of junior golf.

Entry fees from the Ladies Competition are donated to Women’s Golf Associations and Entry fees from the Gents are donated to the Men’s Unions and County Organisations. Many Associations & County’s operate a joint junior development programme which sees benefits to both boys and girls junior golf development.

Our funding model is simple, we donate your entry fee to junior golf development via the County Golf Organisations and by a small number of direct to club donations within those counties for the development of junior golf.  Lancashire has a different junior golf funding model for the Gents Competition. The Organising Committee will allocate funding directly to participating Clubs Junior golf development, due to their County Union not accepting donations.
