When people ask me “what is Golf In Society all about?” I usually reply “It’s a social enterprise that helps people live happier, healthier lives by introducing them to the wonderful world of golf”.
The next question is often “so how does it work?”. My response is normally “We help elderly people improve their health & wellbeing by providing them with a unique combination of physical, mental & social stimulation in beautiful natural surroundings“.
This week our pilot project was featured on Radio 4 – You & Yours. In future when people ask me what we do and the positive impact we have on people’s lives, I’m going to ask them to listen to the Radio 4 feature (link below). In six minutes it says so much about how we’ve helped people living with dementia and their carers improve their lives through golf.
This is what we do, why we do it and why we are so passionate about making it available to more people throughout the UK.
After listening to the link below, you’ll realise why we say “Life is definitely better when you’re golfing!!!
