Junior Club Accreditation

Junior GolfCert is the nationally acknowledged accreditation scheme for golf clubs. It provides a framework to help clubs to improve themselves and to ensure that their programmes, policies and procedures are all in line with best practice.

A new version of the scheme has been introduced by the Golf Union of Wales (via Golf Development Wales 2016) and can be accessed via the new junior golf guide website. It includes a new on line application system.

Junior GolfCert aims to :

  • Ensure that consistent good practice is delivered through all golf club junior development.
  • Ensure accredited clubs are identified and recognised by a national scheme for the good work they do for the sport and their communities.
  • Highlight such clubs as exemplars to others in Wales and to provide a focus for the sharing of good practice in terms of working with children and young people.

Within the accreditation, the five key areas assessed are:

  • Junior Club Structure
  • Recruitment & Coaching
  • Playing & Competition
  • Coach/Volunteer Recruitment & Education
  • Child/Adult Welfare

All five key areas are supported in this website with the Junior Golf Guide resource. Click on the Junior Golf Guide section for further information.

Junior GolfCert is made up of two levels of award; Standard and Higher. Please click on ‘Apply Now’  to access the accreditation. When you have registered, your Regional Development Officer will be notified and you will be sent a confirmation email, detailing your username and login. You can then use this to login, access the criteria and apply online.

Clubs that achieve the Junior GolfCert will:

  • Receive a plaque to be displayed in the clubhouse
  • Promoted on the GDW website
  • Recommended by GDW as a junior friendly club

Integrated within the higher award criteria is the Disability Sport Wales (DSW) insport Ribbon (introductory level). Therefore, clubs that achieve the higher award will also be awarded the DSW insport club accreditation – Ribbon level. Further information can be found on www.disabilitysportwales.com.
