Safguarding at Flixton Golf Club

Millions of children are involved with sport, at all levels of participation and competition, and in various situations. Therefore, the sport is responsible for ensuring their welfare and safety against harm, and Flixton Golf Club takes this responsibility very seriously.

Everyone involved with Flixton Golf Club has a part to play in safeguarding our children – at their home, in their neighbourhood, in our clubhouse or out on the course.

To support our endeavours to look after the welfare of our younger players, visitors and vulnerable adults, Flixton Golf Club has joined together with England Golf in the SafeGolf Partnership.


SafeGolf is a partnership of UK golf bodies committed to promoting a safe and positive environment for all those participating, working and volunteering in the sport of golf.

SafeGolf consists of members from the golfing bodies across Great Britain & Ireland and has been established to help golf respond to the issue of child protection in sport. Its mission is to safeguard the welfare of children and young people, and adults at risk in the sport of golf. This will be achieved through a unique partnership that can influence and act as an advocate for safeguarding across the golfing landscape, developing a consistent approach towards ensuring that all people have a fun, safe and positive experience when playing golf.

Members of SafeGolf include; England Golf, Wales Golf, Scottish Golf, Confederation of Golf in Ireland, The Professional Golfers’ Association, Ladies European Tour, The Golf Foundation, Golf Club Managers’ Association, the British and International Golf Greenkeepers Association and The R&A.
