Alongside every UK golf organisation, Sussex Ladies County Golf Association supports the Slip! Slap! Swing! sun protection for golf campaign. With rates of skin cancer increasing faster than any other cancer in the UK, golfers and greenkeepers are at the highest risk, so it makes sense for clubs to add this to their agenda.
Sun Protection Accreditation costs £49 per calendar year, offering a toolkit of resources, which can be displayed both in the club and on your website. As well as sun protection, the campaign promotes the importance of skin checking, promoting early detection, and helping save lives. Accreditation is easy to achieve and implementation can be delegated to a club or staff member. The campaign’s sunscreen support service will help you stock sunscreen and profit from sales, providing protection and awareness all summer.
Skin cancer is golf's silent killer and it’s time we all started taking it seriously – because if not, why not?
