National Award Winning Program
Dane has a great reputation within the local schools community and in 3 years has delivered golf to over 1500 youngsters, giving them the opportunity to have a go at this great sport. In 2018 bot Dane and Elsham GOlf Club were recognised for the work they had done for girls golf in the community by receiving the Laddie Lucas Presidents award from The Golf Foundation. Here are what some of the teachers from the school had to say:
With the help of Dane and Elsham Golf club, Golf at Baysgarth has gone from strength to strength. We now include it as a regular unit of work in our curriculum with successful teams and individuals competing weekly in golf. Through the summer the taster sessions, satellite clubs and street golf activities give an extra dimension to our PE provision, with many students that are not normally engaged with PE, taking much more interest. Not only has this had an impact as an opportunity for participation, we have also been able to develop golf leaders and ambassadors who take on more in depth roles, with students having opportunities to lead golf activities at events such as Lincs Show and Lincolnshire day. Dane is a fantastic coach and really engages the kids with lots of fun games. We've been very lucky to work so closely with Elsham over the last few years and I would highly recommend them to other schools.

The children at Worlaby Academy really enjoyed the golf experience as part of our Sports Week in the summer term. The staff were also impressed, some saw it as an elitist sport that many people couldn't access, but realised how much the children enjoyed it, especially the confidence it gave some children who don't necessarily excel at other sporting activities.
After the week some children have played some more with parents and grandparents and joined the girls golf at Elsham.
Thanks again, I hope we can look at something further this year.

I would highly recommend Dane's Golf Taster Day as it gives the children the opportunity to try something new. The session is fun packed and caters for all needs and abilities. We had four classes take part last year, and all the feedback from both the children and staff was very positive. One of the children even said that it was the best day ever! We have booked again this year and can't wait. It has given the children a link to a local club for them to attend in their own time if they wish.
