Sport England has announced an £8.5m award to the England Golf Partnership to support talented players and encourage regular golfers to continue playing.
The EGP is a joint partnership between England Golf and the Professional Golfers’ Association to grow the game with the support of the Golf Foundation and Sport England National Lottery funding. The partnership’s Whole Sport Plan for golf aims to increase and widen participation in golf, from grass roots to elite level.
EGP Chairman, Nic Coward, said: “There are 3.6m golfers in England, and the game continues to produce many world-class players. We will continue to work with Sport England on our many projects and initiatives that deliver great results across the country.
“Our main aim is for all involved in the sport to work together in partnership, to put golfers first and to give everyone the best possible experience within the sport. Now we know the level of award from Sport England, we will consider our next steps, taking time to look at how best to deliver with the resources available to us.”
