Gauntlet Golf Risk Management has demonstrated its status as a thought-leader within the golf sector, by creating a groundbreaking and hugely valuable, free-to-download resource – ‘The Changing Face of Golf’. This analyses why golf risk management is becoming more problematic within a rapidly evolving environment and highlights the health and safety issues clubs need to address within new contexts.

As any golf club committee will appreciate, clubs are at the coalface, delivering a sporting experience undergoing rapid change. A fight for survival is leading many clubs to explore new revenue streams and engage in diversification programmes aimed at generating business for both course and clubhouse. Others are having to cut back on expenditure and take decisions on where to trim budgets.

Some are welcoming new ‘breeds’ of golfer, interacting with the club in ways previously untested and with needs differing from those of other members. Others are struggling to communicate health and safety within organizational structures manned solely by volunteers.

‘The Changing Face of Golf’, examines the forces at play within the market and suggests what these mean for health and safety compliance and delivery within Britain’s golf clubs. This ‘first’ within the world of golf is an invaluable resource for those having to cope with an ever-evolving picture and a legislative structure that is, at times, difficult to understand and translate, if this is not your field. 

It is a must-read for any golf club, no matter how big or small, as all are required to ensure the health and safety of employees, volunteers, members, visitors, contractors and other members of the public. Failure to do so will result in heavy fines, criminal prosecution and civil liability claims. It pays to know what the law expects of you.

Remarkably, this resource is available for you to download for free. Once you have mulled over its thought-provoking content, and assessed how the situations described apply to your own club, you can decide whether to access consultancy services, risk assessment support, or e-learning that can address the negatives and arm your club with positive strategies.
