Mendip Spring Golf Club is awarded the much coveted Golfmark from the English Golf Union.

MENDIP Spring Golf Club has been rewarded for its outstanding contribution to local juniors and beginners with the receipt of the much coveted Golfmark award from the English Golf Union.

The Club was also recognised as a High Achiever within the accreditation.

Golfmark is a national scheme that identifies and recognises junior and beginner friendly golf facilities.

The three key areas within a golf club assessed are - coaching and playing, club environment (including sports equity and ethics), child 
protection and duty of care.

Club chairman, Allan Truman has been at the forefront of the drive to gain accreditation, together with club professionals, John 
Blackburn, Rob Moss and Pat Baker, who have spent many hours working with newcomers to the game.

The splendid facilities at Mendip Spring, which includes a 12 bay driving range, practice putting green and nine and 18 hole courses, are perfect for the development of those wishing to take up golf.

The presentation of the award was made to club captain Colin Fear by Somerset county development officer, Paul Barrington.
