Join golfers across the UK and help protect green spaces
Every year, golf clubs and their members support the work that Fields in Trust does to protect parks, playing fields and public golf courses. From hosting golf days and annual FIT Trophy tournaments to choosing Fields in Trust as your club’s charity of the year – we are grateful to all the golfers who support our work to ensure we all have somewhere to play.
"Please join golf clubs throughout the UK in supporting Fields in Trust in their work to protect and improve parks, playing fields and public golf courses so that future generations have accessible places to play."

Every club that supports us will receive a special Badge of Support, which can be worn by, for example, the winner of their FIT Trophy or chief fundraiser.
If your club would like to fundraise for us and be added to our leaderboard, please email Genevieve Hinchliff on firstname.lastname@example.org. We can provide you with posters, balloons, t-shirts, caps and collection boxes – and your golf club will be added to the Fields in Trust Leaderboard.

Golf Club Champions' Hall of Fame
Golf clubs across the country are supporting the work of Fields in Trust. A big thank you to the below golf clubs who have all held fundraising events for us over the last twelve months.
"Our Fields in Trust Trophy 2014 took place in April, won by Mrs Suzanne Pealing. She was delighted as this was her first trophy win at the club. We want to continue our support as the Trophy is, in fact, our oldest one dating from 1950!"
Penrith Golf Club, Ladies Section
"The FIT Trophy is an annual trophy competition that is played by the Ladies’ Section at Buckingham Golf Club in the Spring, and the funds we raise from the entry fees are donated to Fields in Trust.
"This year we had 18 ladies enter the Stableford competition. It was won by our current Ladies’ Captain, Bernadette Howe, who scored 35 points off a handicap of 6. Second place was won on count-back by Fiona Robb and third place went to Lyn Talbot, both of whom had 31 points each. A good day's golf was had by all."
