Blackley makes its mark

BLACKLEY has won a national award from England Golf. The Lancashire club has won a  GolfMark award, an official seal of approval for clubs which successfully work to develop the game in four ways:

  • By attracting new members and encouraging existing members to play more
  • Using practical business planning to develop the club
  • Offering coaching and playing opportunities for all golfers
  • Ensuring safeguarding policies are in place

The club has taken a proactive approach to securing its future and introducing a new generation of players to the sport.

A spokesperson explained: “The application process for GolfMark has been both interesting and enlightening with a positive outcome for the club.

“Over the past year we have been active in the community, visiting and supporting schools, and over the summer we introduced our junior ‘Tee Pegs’ programme, which has been a great success.

Debbie Barber, England Golf’s county development officer for the Lancashire, said: “The club club has achieved GolfMark as a fitting reward for the strides it has made in recent years in building a strong future and bringing more people into the game of golf.”
