Meet the Up & Down Golf Society

"A lot of guys are bad at golf. Significantly more are bad at being open and honest about their mental health.

As someone who has struggled with their mental health and who has seen a lot of close friends struggle, I know from first hand experience how much golf can help. It provides the perfect opportunity to get some fresh air, do some exercise, but most importantly, chat sh*t with your mates for 4 hours.

We've come up with the Up & Down Golf Society to encourage guys, golfers or otherwise, to speak to others who might be in a similar position or who are just happy to listen, in a really casual environment which is as accessible as possible.

We plan to host regular golf days, run like normal society days, but where the focus is on mental health, with any profits being donated directly to CALM."

Maybe it’s turning up at a friend’s door with a takeaway after a busy day, sending a meme you know they’ll find funny, or being there when they’re struggling. It can be hard to know when someone you care about is finding things tough and even harder to know what to say – we got you.
