Have a concern?

For young people

You should always feel safe when playing golf or training.

If you have a concern or are you worried about yourself or someone else in the Golf Club or coaching session you need to speak to someone that can help.

  • At your golf club you should have a Club Welfare officer who can offer you advice or seek further help for you.
  • Golf Development Wales also has a lead Child Protection Officer who can help. Her name is Diane Davies. If you have any queries or would like to discuss any issues please contact Diane on 07923 065317. There is also a Safeguarding Co-ordinator, Sian Simmons who can be contacted via email sian.simmons@golfunionwales.org or by telephone 01633 436040.

The children in golf website also has information especially for young people so please visit www.childreningolf.org and click on the section for young people.
