Everyone should be able to enjoy golf in a safe environment. We all have a responsibility to protect and safeguard children and adults at risk.


One of the most important ways to do this is to report any concerns.

Anti- Doping Code

Settle & Giggleswick Golf Club along with England Golf are committed to tackling doping and promoting the World Anti-Doping Code.

Our anti-doping programme helps us maintain the integrity of golf and protect the health and rights of players.

Settle & Giggleswick Golf Club and England Golf are committed to complying with the National Anti-Doping Policy set out by UK Anti-Doping (“UKAD”) – the national anti-doping authority in the UK.

England Golf’s Anti-Doping Rules

All members of England Golf, and all participants, including non-playing support personnel such as coaches and managers, in the sport of golf are bound by England Golf’s Anti-Doping rules and regulations.

England Golf has directly adopted the UK Anti-Doping Rules, which can be viewed and downloaded here. England Golf has a responsibility to enforce these anti-doping rules throughout the sport of amateur golf in England.

The UKAD Anti-Doping Rules themselves are based on the World Anti-Doping Agency (“WADA”) World Anti-Doping Code (“The Code”).

The Code applies at all levels of golf for women, girls, men and boys. This includes players in our performance programmes, competitors in our championships and events, and club golfers.

Broadly speaking, the rules prohibit the use, possession, and trafficking of all performance enhancing and non-performance enhancing drugs that are set out in the WADA Prohibited List.

Breaking the anti-doping rules can result in a ban from all sport. The Code outlines the Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs). Athletes and athlete support personnel need to make sure they are fully aware of these violations, and the consequences of breaking them. For more information and what this means for those individuals, click here. For information on individuals serving a ban from sport, visit UKAD’s sanction page on their website.
