SchoolsGolf is dedicated to giving as many kids as possible a competitive game of golf on a top golf course. For a million reasons, we think youngsters benefit from golf – more on that another time. So given that we are trying to make golf as accessible as possible, we are sometimes questioned about schools having to join the programme and affiliate.

There are three things to unpick on the opening sentence:

There are few things that we have done to open up our tournaments to as many young players as possible – making a few tournaments Open competitions is one of them. We still want children to be representing their schools when they play, so permission needs to be in place from the relevent teachers and we have a simple form for that.

We look to provide a competitive environment for all our players. SchoolsGolf tournaments attract scratch players (scratch comp) and developing players (stableford comp and team comp). By having a few Open competitions we can look to attract players to certain tournaments to provide a strong field and to increase inclusivity.

Top courses – our open competitions are some jewels:

Sand Moor – what a great day (see previous post)
Seaton Carew

Sandiway – June 11th book here
Fulwell (girls tournament) June 24th – book here

Parents and teachers are welcome to book their school teams or individual young players onto as many of our competitions as they are eligible to enter. Pick and choose from the dates and clubs that work for you. Every event is at one of the country’s finest. Get in touch if you want more info.

We are really pleased to publicise the new SchoolsGolf Merchandise shop where winners can spend their hard-earned vouchers. Shortly after each event, the prize winners will be emailed their unique prize code.

At each event, the Scratch and Stableford winners and runners-up will receive a trophy and a £30 and £20 voucher, respectively.

We have partnered with Kitlocker for our Merchandise store to deliver this. Kitlocker.com began in 2005 with a vision to revolutionize university teamwear service. Founded by two Sheffield graduates, it pioneered client-specific online stores, simplifying kit ordering. Trusted by prestigious institutions like Oxford and Cambridge, as well as sports bodies like The FA, Kitlocker.com collaborates with brands like Castore, Nike and Adidas, ensuring prompt delivery of desired products. 

We are loving this season’s trophies produced for us by Oak & Black. 

Oak & Black work with reclaimed materials whenever possible and believe that with the right amount of focus, attention, and love, they can turn these materials into beautiful products and heirlooms that will bring joy for years to come.

Our players work hard to earn a trophy and we hope they will cherish these rewards for years to come.
