The key principles of SafeGolf are centered around the welfare and safety of participants in the sport of golf. Here are the main points:

  • The welfare of children is paramount.
  • A child is defined by law in England and Wales as a person under the age of 18 years.
  • All children, regardless of their age, race, religion or belief, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation, have the right to protection from abuse

These principles guide the actions and policies of SafeGolf to ensure a safe and positive environment for everyone involved in golf. 

SafeGolf is a partnership of UK and Ireland golf bodies dedicated to promoting a safe and positive environment for everyone involved in the sport of golf. It includes members like England Golf, Wales Golf, Scottish Golf, Golf Ireland, and others.
