About Golf In Society

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our pioneering social mission. The best way to truly understand “what we do” and “why we do it” is to watch this short video…. pictures really do paint a thousand words !

We started our social mission in 2015 to prove how golf can play an important part in improving the lives of families facing challenges later in life.

With over 450 golf sessions successfully delivered and a burning desire to make golf accessible to more families across the UK, our social mission is on track to play an integral role in addressing the challenges facing our ageing population.

Our social dream is to see a network of golf resorts across the UK and beyond where families can enjoy a happier, healthier future no matter what challenges come their way, especially later in life.

In September 2015 we decided to put our social mission to the test. Here’s a summary of our key successes so far;

  • First ever dementia friendly golf club – Lincoln Golf Centre – Sept 2015
  • First ever Parkinson’s friendly golf club – Rudding Park – April 2016
  • First Scottish dementia friendly golf club – Mearns Castle – April 2018

As a social enterprise over 80% of our income goes towards providing front-line services and making our golf sessions available to more families. With a successful track record of delivery and a growth plan in place, we’re now looking for partners and stakeholders who share our mission to use golf to transform lives.

It’s been a challenging journey to get this far but it’s been worth every minute. Knowing that you’re making a real difference to people’s lives is what inspires us to make our social mission a reality…

In the words of Walt Disney “If you can dream it, you can do it” and we’re dreaming big!

  1. I think this is absolutely brilliant! This is very close to my heart. How is it coming with the first dementia friendly golf club in Glasgow? I’d like to see if there are any potential ways to support that initiative!
