Community Outreach

Each of our Get Golfing sites (through its Captain’s) is currently selecting a local charity that is being adopted as the Club’s designated charity for the next 3 years. This will replace the tradition of each section having their own charity, working independently and the relationship ending after a year.

We believe that by working together we can achieve more and not only raise funds for the local charity but build them into heart of each club.

We want to become hubs for our local communities to enjoy golf but also visit our amazing facilities and sites for a variety of social and wellbeing activities. Together with the Captain’s we have seen some great charities, who do amazing work within their local community.

We believe that by all sections working together on a common goal it will:

  • Create a better community within the club
  • Spread the workload
  • Create an exciting and varied social calendar open to everyone in our local communities that are well attended and inclusive
  • Maximise the awareness and engagement with the selected charity
  • Allow them to plan effectively as they will have sustained support over the 3 years
  • Allow them free access to our amazing facilities and spaces to expand their projects, capacity and impact on local people
  • Bring people together to work collaboratively and build upon the great traditions that our golf clubs have in raising much needed funds for local causes
  • Maximise the funds raised for the local charity as to allow expansion of their work and impact in our communities

Both the charity and club will receive support from the Get Golfing Community Outreach team, with dedicated event and fundraising training and the support of the marketing team to promote and maximise a variety of golfing and social activities for everyone to enjoy.

We are looking forward to the January launch of the 8 charities selected by our 8 sites and starting to build lasting relationships that will  make a real difference to the local communities that we serve.

This is just one element of Get Golfing’s Community Hub Program to enhance our golf clubs and share our beautiful sites with everyone. If you would like any further information please contact Faydra Mitchell, Community Outreach Coordinator at [email protected]ing.org.

 

From Stu Williams, Community Development Officer: Hi all! I just wanted to give you a flavour of what your community team get up to in a normal week.

On Monday Hampton Court hosted Hampton Wick primary girls for an amazing visit where the girls had their introduction to golf coached by Yvonne and and the HC team.

Also on Monday, Mill Green hosted Music 24 for their Musical café session to help with their dementia music therapy work. They receive the facility for free and create an amazing environment for both sufferers and carers to relax in our beautiful spaces and create fun music.

On Wednesday Creswick primary school brought their year 5 class for a great morning of golf on the range, par 3 and putting green. They are the sites adopted school for 2022 and looking forward to a great partnership. Thanks to site pros Jack and Olly for the great sessions.

Redlibbets recently hosted their 2nd SEN multi sports afternoon that saw 16 children take part in archery/boccia/table tennis/golf and pong.

Pyrford Lakes hosted their wreath making event in aid of Age concern Woking.

Sherfield Oaks are hosting the Loddon school staff on Monday to plan 2022 and how we can support our nearest special school.

This month Get Golfing’s community team have worked in partnership with Sherfield Oaks on their member led fundraising campaign for the staff injured in a recent accident. It was a great example of how working together we can achieve more and delivered amazing results in a really quick turnaround.

The online auction kick started the fundraising campaign that culminated in a great golf day that saw over 100 members and guests enjoy the Wellington course and a fun evening organised by Club Captain Guy Wright.

Over 16 thousand pounds was raised thanks to the amazing generosity of the members, those who donated items and all who bid either online or on the night.

An amazing achievement that will help those involved to a speedy recovery.

Club News

From Albert Sinfield, Golf Manager: I think it is fair to say it’s time to wrap up warm when going out on the golf course. With the course turning orange with autumn leaves and the wintery weather on its way it is great to see many of you still out there enjoying your golf. It is fantastic to see the course playing as well as it is and a pleasure receiving feedback from many of you how impressed you have been with it.  

We still have plenty of golf to play in the lead up to Christmas and be sure to visit IG to sign yourself up to the second Turkey Trott competition taking place on Sunday 12th December. The event is normally well supported with an arrival breakfast, 18 holes of competitive golf, followed by a one course Christmas lunch and prize giving. These days are open to members and members guests so please feel free to invite friends and family along to play alongside you. To take part it will cost £25 for members and £50 for guests.

If you have been out in recent weeks, you may have seen increased signage helping to protect delicate areas of the course, ensuring buggies, trolleys and golfers are kept in the driest areas. Can I please ask everyone when playing to help us in keeping our course in the best possible condition this winter, by abiding by these roped off areas. The greenkeeping team will continue to work hard on the course and when needed add and remove roped off areas. Thank you in advance for your efforts in protecting our golf course.  

If you are looking for that last minute gift, but unsure what to buy don’t forget we offer Redlibbets gift cards at the club. These gift cards can be used throughout the club and can be purchased for any value. These can be arranged via the office and are presented in a crested gift pack and personalised letter for Christmas. Please reach out to a member of the team for more information.  

This year has been challenging with closures and working from a pop-up desk for most of the early part of the season. This being said, we have had some great improvements with the club house and entrance refurbishments, the launch of the new online pro shop and a golf course that has improved throughout the year. On behalf of us all at the club I want to thank you for your continued support and without it would make the club a very different place. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We are all excited to see what the 2022 golfing season has in store for the club and your golf games!
