England Golf passionately believes that golf belongs to everyone. All who play, and all who aspire to play, must have an equal opportunity to do so.
By listening to underrepresented voices, we will strive to positively affect everyone’s experience of our sport. There is no place in golf for any form of discrimination. The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Framework is built on three key pillars:
Everyone is treated fairly so they may enjoy all aspects of golf (Equality)
Everyone is recognised and can see themselves and be seen in golf (Diversity)
Everyone is welcomed and feels that they belong in golf (Inclusion)
We have developed a framework which will allow stakeholders in clubs and counties to work more closely with the national governing body, guided by a set of common principles, to ensure that everyone who wants to participate in golf has the opportunity to do so.
The commitments in the framework are in line with England Golf’s four main principles as set out within the ‘Course Planner’ (strategic direction 2021-25) and the key pledge to deliver a more inclusive and accessible sport.
