Join our social movement #Transforminglives
At Golf in Society we specialise in transforming the lives of our ageing population by introducing them to the wonderful game of golf. Here’s an insight into the difference we make.
By putting golf clubs at the heart of local communities we create opportunities for people living with chronic illnesses such as Dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Stroke, Loneliness, and Depression to discover a happier, healthier life with golf at the heart of it. Our sessions also provide Regular, Reliable, Respite time for unpaid carers.
Our Social Mission
Here’s a brief introduction to our social mission by our founder, Anthony Blackburn.
Personalised Golf Experiences
Everything we do is designed in partnership with the families we support. By co-designing every aspect of our Discover Golf programmes (TM) and Carers Wellbeing Events (TM) programmes, we create life-enhancing experiences that ignite the “sporting spark” in people living with chronic illness as well as providing their unpaid carers with a regular, reliable break that allows them to improve their own health and happiness.
One of the best ways to understand how important our services have become to the families we support is to watch the two videos below:

Our Proven Track Record
With a track record of delivering over 1000 golf sessions behind us and a burning desire to make golf more accessible, more often to more families across the UK, our social mission is on track to play an integral part in encouraging people to enjoy the healthier, happier life they deserve.
Creating Age Friendly Golf Venues
Our determination to create a national network of “age-friendly golf venues” is highlighted in this video taken in Scotland that shows how much happiness and sense of purpose we’re providing for the families we support north of the border.
A Proven Concept Ready To Scale
With a proven concept in the bag, a compelling track record of social impact behind us, new venues in the pipeline and a range of new services being co-designed ready for Spring, the next chapter of our social mission is set to be the most inspirational and rewarding to date.
Providing hope for the future
As society recovers from the COVID-19 crisis we’re more determined than ever to support families improve their lives at their local golf venue. Not only will we be offering our inspirational golf sessions, we’ll also be delivering our Carers Wellbeing Events that focus on supporting unpaid carers improve their own health, wellbeing & resilience.
Social Enterprises leading the way in Healthy Ageing
Since we started six years ago we’ve faced many challenges, some of which at the time seemed insurmountable. However, we’ve always managed to find a way forward. This is why we passionately believe that social entrepreneurs have a critical role to play in solving the Healthy Ageing crisis facing our nation.
Here’s an insight from our founder into the importance of social enterprises in the ageing population space.
So, as the world contemplates how to build a happier, healthier, brighter future for older adults, at Golf in Society we’re ready and willing to play a bigger role in transforming lives.
