Downe golf club hits the mark to win national award

By Luke King in Community News

WEST Kent Golf Club has landed a national award from England Golf.

The Downe club picked up the GolfMark award, a seal of approval for clubs that have attracted new members and encouraged existing ones to play more.

Under the guidance of general manager Steve Gledhill, the club has introduced a number of new initiatives to drive membership over the last nine months. A recent open day was particularly popular, generating 37 trial memberships.

Steve, who led the club’s push to GolfMark, said: “West Kent is a great club, it’s very friendly, welcoming and forward-thinking.

“This award helps us to spread that message and to tell people that children are safe and secure here and that we understand about beginner golfers.”
