Golf in the Community

Community Health & Well Being Community Integration Protection of the Environment Golf is a game that promotes the fundamental values of life such as honesty, integrity, self-respect, confidence, sportsmanship and consideration for others. It is a great way to meet new friends and is a platform for social interaction between people from all walks of life. It can be played by people of all ages and as such is a link between generations. Golf Clubs add significantly to the social capital of the community well beyond their function as sporting facilities. Golf courses have benefits for our natural environment, preserving open space as a sanctuary for flora and fauna. In recognising the game s potential as a vehicle for community development, Golf Australia aims to produce programs and resources that promote health, well-being, integration and protection of the environment.
