Filey Golf Club in North Yorkshire has just become the 600th club to achieve the GolfMark – England Golf’s award for junior and beginner-friendly facilities.

The GolfMark scheme, which incorporates Sport England’s Clubmark award, was launched in 2006.

“We are very, very pleased to have GolfMark,” said John Spaven, who shares junior organiser duties with fellow member Trish Nicholson.

“It’s extra special to be the 600th club and we are really pleased to receive this recognition.

“It has been two years of hard work and we appreciate the support we have had from Richard Brown, our regional development officer from England Golf.”
