Toft Golf Club has been awarded GolfMark accreditation from England Golf in recognition of work the club has undertaken to encourage young players and beginners into the sport.

The GolfMark award integrates Sport England’s Clubmark award - a national standard for sports clubs recognised across the country.

GolfMark specifically evaluates golf clubs on the following three areas within their junior section: Robert Reid, proprietor of Toft Golf Club, said: “What a lovely 25th anniversary celebration for us here at Toft in the outstanding attainment of the England Golf GolfMark Award.

“We are simply thrilled to be able to properly support the junior section of our club which has had a 200 percent increase in membership this year.

“I would like to acknowledge the support of Darren Game from Bourne Golf Studio. His students are interactive with ours here at Toft.”

Darren added: “I’m very excited to have been asked by Robert and Julia Reid to come back and work at Toft and rebuild the junior section - a section that I was part of when the course opened 25 years ago.

“Receiving the England GolfMark award on the club’s 25th Anniversary is a fantastic anniversary present, and hopefully shows our commitment to creating a junior section that allows children in the area to come and learn how to play the game for life.”

Junior golf lessons and group academy sessions are available now. For more information call Darren Game on 01778 395992.
