Integrity Framework

Integrity Framework - Safe, fair & inclusive golf

Golf Australia is committed to developing and evolving our systems, processes, programs and behaviours to safeguard the integrity of our sport, our organisation, and those involved at all levels.

To meet our legal and moral obligations and to strive towards best practice as the national sporting body for golf in Australia, we have developed a range of proactive measures to address contemporary challenges around safe, fair and inclusive sport. We have also outlined peoples’ rights and responsibilities to ensure they know what behaviours are not acceptable and the positive actions that should be promoted.

The following whole-of-sport Integrity Framework covers the core integrity areas of Safe Sport, Inclusive Sport and Fair Sport.

Each section details our commitment to maintaining the integrity of our sport through:

  • Our commitment to child safe sporting environments, inclusive sport that welcomes everyone, and fair sport to protect against integrity issues.

  • Policies and codes that outline peoples’ rights and responsibilities.

  • Complaints procedures and reporting options.

  • What we do in our relevant program areas.

  • Ways to get involved to promote safe, fair and inclusive sport in your club.

  • Tools and resources to support you actions and goals.

  • Education and training options to increase your skill and knowledge.

  • Contacts and links for further assistance or support.

Golf Australia will continue to work closely with relevant government agencies such as Sport Australia, Sport Integrity Australia, Office of Sport, ASADA, the National Integrity of Sport Unit, as well as our State/Territory partners, golf clubs and associations.
