Golf Business News - Golfers donate over 16,000 balls to Golf Trust campaign


The Golf Trust, a UK registered charity, has shipped an incredible 16,000 golf balls to Fafali, a charity based in Ghana that delivers a ‘Golf & Goal’ educational programme.

Golf clubs and golfers from all over the UK were called into action with a nationwide campaign taking place over the Christmas period and into the New Year. 

Golf balls, whilst easily accessible over here, are hard to come by in Ghana and, with the help of everyone who has donated, The Golf Trust are enabling this incredible programme to continue into the rest of 2024. The programme provides golf coaching and a mainstream education for Ghanaian children who may not receive an education otherwise. Children are gifted equipment to continue their golf education alongside their schooling if they remain on the course and interested in the sport.

“The Golf Trust has been a great partner in our quest to grow the game in Ghana,” explains Solomon Allotey of the Ghana Golf Union. “Through their support, we have been able to provide the needed equipment to the underprivileged in Accra who wouldn’t have access to golf.”

Cae Menai-Davis, founder of The Golf Trust, said: “I was totally blown away with the amount of balls clubs from all over the country were donating. I was driving vans full of golf balls up and down the country, so they’ve seen some miles even before they make their way to Ghana.  It may only seem like golf balls, but to Fafali they are a huge help and will help them out massively over the next couple of months. The work they do over there to not only grow the game of golf but to also give children a fantastic education is simply incredible and we look forward to helping them grow in the future.”

Over 3,000 golf balls were donated by the Staffordshire Golf Union after Trentham Golf Club, Barlaston Golf Club and The South Staffordshire Golf Club were among some of the first clubs to sign up to the campaign. County SecretaryGareth Shaw said: “Once I put the message out to clubs we were inundated with people saying they had golf balls to donate. To donate them to such a worthy cause was an easy decision for us and we’re delighted we were able to collect and donate over 3,000.”
