A commitment to a more inclusive culture within golf
Groundwork Yorkshire is a registered charity and under the brand of Groundwork Golf we manage Springhead Park (Kingston upon Hull)) Golf Club.
Groundwork Golf and Springhead Park Golf Club calls on everyone involved in golf to play their part in developing a culture that values women’s involvement in every aspect of the sport, from participating to pursuing a career.
Our aim is to increase the number of women and girls playing and working in golf.
To achieve this goal and to enable women to flourish throughout golf, we recognise the need for a fundamental shift in culture. There is a clear ethical need for change and the potential economic benefits of growing the sport through more women and girls playing are substantial.
The R&A commits to playing a leading role in this process and to working with affiliates, partners and the wider golf industry towards achieving this goal.
In signing this Charter, Groundwork Golf and Springhead Park Golf Club commit to making tangible efforts to develop a welcoming and inspiring environment for women. We will do more to attract women into golf, to remain, and to have rewarding careers.
