Club Policies

Safeguarding children and young people policy

Whilst children and young people participate in golf activities in our care, Hendon Golf Club is responsible for ensuring their safety and wellbeing.

Hendon Golf Club recognises the policies of the National Governing bodies, as set out in the “Guidelines for Safeguarding Children in Golf”. The policy and supporting procedures set a framework to fulfil our commitment to good practice and protecting children in our care.


  • A child is defined by law as a person under the age of 18 years
  • The welfare of children is paramount
  • All children, regardless of their Age, Race, Religion or Belief, Disability, Sex or Sexual Orientation, have the right to protection from abuse.
  • All concerns and allegations of abuse and poor practice will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
  • All children have the right to be safe
  • All children have the right to be treated with dignity and respect
  • Hendon Golf Club will work with children, their parents and external organisations to safeguard the welfare of children participating in golf
  • We recognise the authority of the statutory agencies and are committed to complying with Local Safeguarding Children Board Guidelines (LSCB) and any documentation which supersedes these.


Hendon Golf Club aim to:

  • Provide a safe environment for children participating in golfing activities within the club and try to ensure that they enjoy the experience.
  • Reassure parents (and carers) that their children will receive the best care possible whilst participating in club activities & communicate policy & procedure to them through website/letter/consents.
  • Support adults (staff, volunteers, PGA Professionals, coaches, members and visitors to the club) in understanding their roles and responsibilities about the Duty of Care and protection of children.
  • Provide appropriate training and support to staff, volunteers & coaches to make informed and confident responses to specific child protection issues and to effectively fulfil their role.
  • Adopt the Children in Golf Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and Procedures and any related policies where appropriate.
