About Golf Foundation
The Golf Foundation believes that golf is a wholesome activity that enriches the lives of those who participate in the sport. Through its work, it aims to give all young people a positive experience through the medium of golf regardless of their background or circumstances.
'Skills for Life' is a principle that underpins the Golf Foundation's work and links directly to the organisation's mission statement. It is based on the belief that children and young people are able to develop playing skills and personal skills through the Foundation's development initiatives, which will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Encouraging children and young people to learn and practice the basic playing skills – putting, short game, long game, course play and the golfer's code – will lead to the psychological and physical benefits associated with improvement, personal achievement and life-long participation in sport.
Golf places strong emphasis on standards of behaviour and, therefore, is an ideal medium through which children and young people can develop six core personal skills – honesty, respect, co-operation, perseverance, concentration and self-motivation – which will help them through their youth and into adulthood.
