Our Commitment to Safeguarding
You may be aware that Bracken Ghyll Golf Club is a member club of England Golf and that the Club is proud to have been awarded and retained England Golf’s national stamp of approval for clubs – GolfMark.

This accreditation scheme is an assurance of quality regarding:
* Membership recruitment and retention;
* Club management and sustainability;
* Player coaching and competitions;
* Safeguarding.

Regarding Safeguarding, Bracken Ghyll GC is committed to ensuring that the sport of golf is one within which all persons can thrive and flourish in a safe environment and that all children, young people and adults at risk have a fun, safe and positive experience.

To this end the Club has two policies, both of which can be found in the public area of the club’s website (www.brackenghyllgolfclub.co.uk) under ‘The Club/Safeguarding’. These are:
* BGGC Child & Young Persons Safeguarding Policies and Procedures; and
* BGGC Safeguarding Adults Policy.

The purpose of this email is to make you aware of the Club’s ‘GolfMark’ accreditation, our on-going commitment to quality and safeguarding and to draw your specific attention to the two safeguarding documents above.

Please familiarise yourself with these documents and don’t hesitate to contact me should you need any further information or clarification.

Play Safe and Stay Safe.
