The GGU recognises the need to ensure the welfare and safety of all children in golf. As part of our commitment to ensure their safety we will not permit photographs, video images or other images of your child to be taken or used without your consent.
The GGU will follow the guidance for the use of images of children as detailed within the respective Child Protection Policy and Procedures and will take steps to ensure these images are used solely for the purposes for which they are intended i.e. your child's coaching or the promotion and celebration of the activities of GGU.
Each year England Golf make significant financial contributions towards a number of county coaching programmes across the country. In order to continue to support future programmes and improve on the quality of coaching, England Golf may ask players to provide feedback on their county coaching experiences. This feedback would typically take the form of a short on-line survey.
To support this process England Golf asks the GGU to provide it with an email address that they can use to directly contact players who are participating in any coaching programme that they make a financial contribution towards.
The financial contribution made by England Golf is significant, and enables it to evaluate the success of current county coaching programmes, which will help to secure continued funding and support for your child's golfing aspirations.
