Empower Golf is grateful for the continuing help of volunteers to ensure that we can keep the financial barriers to playing golf as low as possible.
Volunteering can be done on an individual basis or as a team building corporate exercise.
There are so many opportunities to make a difference as a volunteer and to share your passion for golf.
Contact Lachy Foulsham for more information about how to volunteer.

Many large companies encourage their staff to give back to the community, through their charitable foundation. To make this help as easy as possible, Empower Golf Australia has charitable gift status from the ATO.
With the extra assistance of a corporate team, Empower Golf has previously been able to partner with a disability support organisations to run bespoke golf days for their clients. This becomes a truly memorable shared experience for the group and further reduces any awkwardness that might come from trying a new activity.
Come and Share the Moment
It is an amazing and humbling experience to share the moment when a person realises that they have found a new activity they didn’t think would be possible, or when someone strikes a ball for the first time after a major accident or illness.
