The GolfMark award also integrates Sport England's Clubmark award - a national standard for quality sports clubs recognised across the country.

More than twenty other sports, including tennis and rugby are also using the alliance to add value to their accreditation schemes and over 5000 sports clubs have been awarded Clubmark or are working towards achieving accreditation.

There are a number of benefits that golf clubs can gain by achieving GolfMark accreditation, including increased membership, raising the club's profile, further development of coaches and volunteers and greater access to funding.

GolfMark evaluates golf clubs on three areas within their junior section: coaching and playing, club environment, including sports equity and ethics and child protection and duty of care.

The award is provided by the EGU and EWGA via the England Golf Partnership's 'Whole Sport Plan' for golf.
