Golf in Society
Introducing the social, health and wellbeing benefits of golf to our ageing population by delivering person-centred sessions that increase activity and social connectivity to help create happier, healthier lives.
About the project
Golf in Society are introducing the social, health and wellbeing benefits of golf to our ageing population.
Older people with diagnosed health conditions enjoy moderate exercise, discover a renewed sense of purpose, enjoy the beautiful outdoors and meet new people. They discover how their local golf club can become an integral part of a happier, healthier life.
Trained golf coordinators (many with lived experience of an age-related health condition) deliver person-centred sessions, which make our golfers feel special. Supported golf sessions then become part of their weekly routine and something exciting to look forward to. This also gives their carers the chance to plan their lives, knowing they can rely on us for a regular respite break.
