Skills for Life
Golf United uses the sport of Golf as a catalyst for community development within our catchment area.
Specifically Golf United provides facilities for golf coaching and equipment for volunteers to work within our community, enhancing community cohesion as well as the personal physical and physiological development of various age groups. We specifically work in local primary schools after school hours and community and voluntary groups within the geographical remit of Derry City and Strabane Council; irrespective of religious denomination or social and cultural backgrounds.
We also outreach programmes to labour intensive workforce's and shift workers to learn new skills and provide a "live-well - work-well" programme; and local successful young golfers to act as mentors for the school students.
We provide integrated golf tournaments on neutral territory for all participants in the Golf United programmes; interdenominational golf tournaments on neutral territory; social events at the golf club; opportunities to socialise and learn new skills and play together.
