Golf For All
Golf continues to encourage more ethnic groups into the sport. It is a game that aims to be fully inclusive across all backgrounds, including to non-white groups.

An inclusive environment is key to the sustainability of the game. 

We want clubs to respond to the needs of all players and encouraging minority ethnic communities is an area with huge potential for growth in the sport.

Zane Scotland

In March 2022, The R&A appointed Zane Scotland as a diversity ambassador to support the development of initiatives that encourage more people from ethnically diverse communities into golf.  As part of the new partnership, the professional golfer is assisting with the interpretation of research to understand the challenges that exist for ethnically diverse communities and identify actions that can be taken to break down barriers and make golf more welcoming and appealing.

Golf Societies

We regularly engage with active golf societies including British Black Golfers and the Muslim Golf Association to foster valuable relationships and generate involvement in future activity.

Black British Golfers

Founder of Black British Golfers, Ray Nyabola, has an inspiring story to tell.

From his first time playing at Welwyn Garden City Golf Club to organising the inaugural Black British Open at The Shire, we gained an insight into what inspired him to set up the organisation.
