Golf for All in Norfolk

The Norfolk County Golf Partnership (NCGP) was officially launched 2008. Over half of Norfolk clubs were represented as well as representatives from the Norfolk Golf Union, Norfolk Professional Golfers' Association, Norfolk County Ladies Golf Association, School Sports Partnerships and Easton College.

What do we do?

Create and deliver an overarching strategy to support clubs and grow golf in Norfolk.

Promote the game of golf, reach new audiences and look to break down barriers and perceptions that some people may still have, i.e that it's 'a sport only for men'!

  • Create and promote appropriate, fun and affordable coaching and playing opportunities for people brand new or returning to golf through our county wide 'Get into Golf' programme.
  • Work closely with clubs to help identify and support their business objectives, such as growing and retaining their membership numbers.
  • Support clubs to become sustainable, thriving businesses and advise on marketing and business plans.
  • Work with PGA professionals to provide them with training and education opportunities.
  • Promote golf to children in schools and the local community.
  • Build relationships with key partners and stakeholders to ensure that golf is fully connected to appropriate local and national development initiatives.

Some of the work we've already done this year includes:-

  • Working closely with 15 clubs across Norfolk to set up, promote and deliver one of the best performing Get into golf programmes in the country.
  • Introducing over 380 new adults (26 years +) to golf over the summer. 160 of these were women.
  • Supporting clubs to ensure these new people have an enjoyable and FUN first experience of golf and are retained in the game by offering appropriate follow-on coaching and playing opportunities with a clear pathway to membership.
  • The setting up of a disability golf project which now sees golfing activity being delivered as part of our Inclusive Get into golf programme, at the Disability Inclusive Sports Club at the UEA Sports Park and a monthly open session on the second Thursday of each month at Norwich Family Golf Centre.
  • Raising the profile of women and girls' golf through campaigns such as #ThisGirlGolfs and Girl's Golf Rocks.
  • Securing external funding to further support our work and that of the clubs.
