The Northumberland County Golf Partnership is also helping to develop golf within the county by offering sessions to increase participation and providing support to golf clubs, players, coaches and volunteers.  See for more information.

Many golf clubs have been able to offer golf taster sessions and activities for a number of years through the support of England Golf and have introduced thousands of beginners to golf and golf clubs.  In the 2011/2012 scheme, over 22,000 participants (69% adults and 31% juniors) attended one of the golf clubs offering activities as part of this scheme.  49% of the adults and 61% of the juniors went on to take further coaching.

The Club Coaching Grant scheme is one of several initiatives jointly provided by England Golf via the England Golf Partnership's ‘Whole Sport Plan' for golf and is an integral part of England Golf's vision to ‘Grow the Game'.
