To help with the delivery of golf at your institution, England Golf recommends that you recruit one or more Student Activators to work alongside the County Development Officer. Support is available to help select an Activator and this will be done in partnership between the University/College and County Golf Partnership.

The role of the Student Activator will be to support the development of golf within the University/College to increase participation through the delivery of informal and formal activities, recruit and retain new golfers through golf related activities and Organise a golf society within the University/College if appropriate.

The Activator will work with the County Golf Partnership, in particular the County Development Officer. They do not have to come from a golfing background as training may be available to support. County Development Officers will work closely with the Activator to help them establish golf activities on site as well as arranging coaching sessions at local golf facilities.

There are a number of benefits to being a Student Activator:

  • Experience of project management and event planning.
  • Opportunity to develop golf within a University/College.
  • Potential training qualifications.
  • Kit will be provided.
  • Social activities.
  • Local and national volunteering opportunities.
  • Access to local golfing opportunities.

Several students who have taken part in developing golf within their University/College have since been successful in developing a career within the industry.
