      EVENT DETAILS
      Run a Golf Memories Group at Your Club!

      Would you like to find out how to set up a Golf Memories Group at your club? A 'Golf Memories Group' is a community led group based at a golf facility to help improve the lives of those living with memory loss conditions, notably dementia but is open to anyone who is older, isolated, lonely or suffering from other age-related medical conditions. They are part of the overall Golf Memories Project, as part of the Sports Heritage Scotland network and are supported by Alzheimer Scotland in planning and best practice. The R&A is supporting this initiative as part of their involvement in the Golf and Health Project. Memory loss conditions affect increasing numbers of golfers and members of Scottish golf clubs. Golf Memories Groups can assist clubs to deal with wider issues that arise around members with these challenges and provide them with a life improving golf reminiscence experience. After assisting the setup of a small number of 'Golfing Memories' groups nationally, including at Troon, St Andrews and Carnoustie, Sports Heritage Scotland supported by Alzheimer Scotland will deliver free to attend training to Scottish Golf affiliated club volunteers and staff who are interested in setting up their own Golf Memories group. Spaces are limited to two representatives per club.
