Get Your 'Golf Tours' Sun Protection Accredited

If you work in golf tourism, becoming ‘Sun Protection Accredited’ will provide you with up-to-date resources to benefit the health and wellbeing of your clients. By signing up you will become part of wider community within golf, helping to create national impact on skin cancer.

The following actions have been designed to help create awareness, and improve attitudes and behaviour around sun protection in golf, both home and abroad. Our question is, if not, why not?

Your Actions


Add the resource sheet on your ‘golf travel information’ page (or similar) via a link, or in whole.


Download and display our awareness poster to help keep sun protection front of mind for all.


Share the sun protection statement with clients at time of booking, providing a link to our resources or the information on their website.

PLEASE NOTE: Your toolkit of downloadable resources will be supplied following registration.
*An accreditation window sticker will be posted out on registration.

Why is it important?

Melanoma is our fastest rising cancer, but it is also largely preventable. With summer’s becoming hotter, it’s important spread awareness to those who spend a lot of time outdoors and underestimate the risks. If not now, then when?

Is it timely?

No. You simply need to read our guidelines and then pledge to implement some simple but effective actions within your club. We will support you with all you need to create a buzz around sun protection. We will even offer you some incentives such as complimentary sunscreen!

What are the benefits?

We can help improve your duty of care strategy and support your health and safety guidelines. Enhance your CSR policies and join a community of clubs, impacting the health of all in golf. We will also provide you with advice on generating publicity to ensure your efforts are recognised in the local community.

Who does it?

We suggest that this undertaken by the club’s PGA Pro or a member of staff who is willing to commit to the actions. This person should have the support of the club manager.
