GolfMark award for Dartmouth Golf & Country Club
August 17, 2011

Dartmouth Golf & Country Club's work with juniors and beginner golfers has been recognised with the prestigious GolfMark award from the English Golf Union.

GolfMark status is bestowed upon clubs who demonstrate their commitment to developing newcomers to the game and helps further this with structured training plans and the support of a regional development officer.

The end result will be better tuition for youngsters and new members at Dartmouth Golf & Country Club, who can be sure they're within a nationally accredited venue and, most importantly, a fun, enjoyable and welcoming environment.

Jamie Waugh, managing director of Dartmouth Golf & Country Club said: "We have had a dedicated team who have worked very hard over a number of years to achieve GolfMark status and we are delighted that their efforts have been formally recognised. We would especially like to thank Rob Glazier, Stuart Barrett, Jan Keen and Ian Smith.

"New golfers, whether they're juniors or those coming to the game later in life, are the lifeblood of the sport and we've always gone to every length to encourage and help take them forward".

"Being part of the GolfMark scheme will help us further the good work we're already doing and hopefully make those thinking of taking up golf aware that Dartmouth Golf & Country Club is the best place to do so."

The resort's established junior academy boasts more than 40 members who meet every weekend to develop their golf through a range of off and on-course coaching with PGA professionals.

Situated in 225 acres of south Devon countryside, Dartmouth Golf & Country Club boasts a range of facilities that can aid beginner golfers with their development, with practice facilities including a driving range and large putting green; the highly acclaimed nine-hole Dartmouth Course, and the award-winning 18-hole Championship Course.

The English Golf Union and English Women's Golf Association developed the GolfMark award to identify and acknowledge golf facilities in England that were junior and beginner friendly. It ensures clubs meet the highest standards in three areas: coaching and playing; club environment, including sports equity and ethics; and child protection and duty of care.

The GolfMark award also integrates Sport England's Clubmark award - a national standard for quality sports clubs recognised across the country. More than 30 other sports, including tennis and rugby are also using the alliance to add value to their accreditation schemes and more than 10,000 sports clubs have been awarded Clubmark or are working towards achieving accreditation.
