We want to hear how you got into golf, and whether the Golf Foundation has helped to shape your golfing journey.

We've helped millions of youngsters get into the game over our 70 year existence, and many have enjoyed the wider benefits of golf both on and off the golf course.

How did you first get into golf? Who helped you on your path? And did you come across the Golf Foundation at school or at a club?

My Golfing Journey...

10 year old Owen from Staffordshire had a difficult start in life. At the age of 3 he needed surgery for a hole in his heart and was later diagnosed with speech and learning difficulties, but this has not stopped him playing sport and developing a huge passion for golf! Owen first picked up a golf club at school but 3 years later now attends weekly coaching sessions at Onneley GC where he has made lots of friends and become a club member. 

Owen’s Mother Julie, believes golf has had a positive impact on her son: ‘Golf has brought Owen on leaps and bounds, it has helped him physically and mentally. Walking round the course helps his fitness, and hitting a golf ball is improving his upper body strength. He has grown in confidence, improved his social skills and mixes well with other children. We are so proud of his progress.’

Leah was introduced to golf by The Golf Foundation. Leah says: “Since learning to play I have had to develop so many skills. I am a different person; I was shy but I have become more confident by playing golf. I now help coach the younger groups. I have been asked to be the club’s next junior captain, something I never dreamed would happen.
