Ryder Cup European Development Trust

Faldo Series

The Faldo Series was set up by Sir Nick Faldo to enable him to give back to the game of golf and provide opportunities to try the game to thousands of young people, both golfers and non-golfers.

The Faldo Series aims to work with likeminded partners in order to develop grass roots golf. Recently The Faldo Series has been running events in selected countries for junior golfers, many of them from disadvantaged backgrounds, in order to gain valuable tournament experience. Alongside these events the Faldo Series is running golf workshop for local children and workshops with local coaches and even in some cases with national squads, all to grow the game and introduce as many children as possible to golf.

The Faldo Series links in with the relevant golf development association in each country to ensure that the coaching clinics which are being given are all part of the overall work to increase participation.

Working with the Ryder Cup European Development Trust, the Faldo Series has run events in Russia and the Netherlands in previous years. All of the events have been very successful, producing some fantastic golf and continuing to develop the game in each particular country. At each event hundreds of children received free coaching as part of their introduction to the game of golf. Entry to the golf events is free of charge.
