Oaks Golf Club teams up with Crystal Palace
An impressive StreetGolf Satellite Club is being staged in Surrey with help from the team at The Oaks Golf Centre.
The club will be linked to the Premier League 4 Sport programme (PL4S) and young people in the area who have links with the Crystal Palace FC Foundation will enjoy the chance to play golf for the first time. The Foundation also runs sessions in Basketball, Netball, Athletics, Table Tennis and Boxing with strong follow-on opportunities to take their new sports further.
Foundation RDO Andy Wright led a coaches workshop session for the new Satellite Club featuring The Oaks’s Junior Golf Development Manager Gary Clements and Director of Golf Jon Woodroffe, plus coaches from Crystal Palace.
The Oaks is one of four golf venues in the South East area supporting the project. Pictured is Roxanne Bennett, Sports Development Officer at CPFC Foundation, who said: “With the continued partnership between Crystal Palace FC Foundation, Premier League 4 Sport and the Golf Foundation we are able to offer the opportunity for young people to play golf at their local clubs and receive free weekly lessons.”
