Our role in the community has always been important and seldom has it been more necessary. As a proud family-owned business for the past 4- years, it’s always been important to us to be a good neighbour and support those from all backgrounds.

Our core values of a business of making people feel they belong and providing families with experiences to remember don’t stop at the gates of the estate. We are committed to giving back to the Surrey community through various charitable initiatives, donations and fundraising.

On top of our golf scholarship programme, The Foxhills Foundation, and the Foxhills Community Camps, which provide free holiday camps for disadvantaged youngsters across the county, the club also:

- Hosts regular fundraising events and offers a preferential charity rate for auction evenings etc.

-  Foxhills members can nominate a good cause each month for local charities, auctions, community groups in need of fundraising vouchers where we donate fourball, afternoon tea, dining, spa and even overnight stays.

- The club offers a limited number of subsidised memberships for our local key workers.

- Each year, the club captain also picks the 'Captain's Charity' which is currently White Lodge Centre. Throughout the golf season, various member events and golf competitions will raise money for the chosen charity along with initiatives and challenges with our PGA Professionals. 

- In 2020, as part of the first Covid lockdown, Foxhills and its members came together to donate more than £28k to food banks in Runnymede.

- In 2023, Managing Director, Tej Walia, raised more than £5k for Crossroads Care Surrey and the county’s unpaid carers through the I’m a Director Get Me Out of Here challenge.

- Each Christmas, the club also provides hampers to the local Children with Special Needs charity in Chobham.

The Foxhills Foundation

Foxhills Foundation Scholars

The oldest golf scholarship programme in the country, the Foxhills Foundation started in 1986 and has established itself as one of the UK's top development programmes.

Through expert coaching and support, it has helped develop more than 300 of the next generation of young golfers including PGA Tour and European Tour stars, Paul Casey and Anthony Wall, on their way to stellar careers. Last time we checked, a third of our graduates were earning a living from golf whether this be playing on tour, coaching or another role within the industry.

Youngsters aged 13 to 18 from the local community, who may not previously have had the opportunity or be able to afford membership at Foxhills, are picked through a careful selection progress and given a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make the most of their golfing potential with everything they need to gain a deep understanding of the game, both on and off the course. The aim is to identify Surrey's brightest up-and-coming stars and give them the opportunity and tools to succeed.

Delivered by Foxhills’ PGA Professionals, the scholars will benefit from an honorary membership at a PGA Cup host venue with three courses and unrivalled practice facilities, in addition to mentoring, specialist tuition and equipment support. Not only will they have access to weekly group and private lessons, but also range balls, clothing and the opportunity to represent the club in competitions.

ENQUIRE ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

Foxhills Community Camps

Started in 2019, the camps enable dozens of local children from Surrey to enjoy a free holiday camp at various venues across the county during the summer and October half-term.

Organised by Runnymede Borough Council and funded with more than £200k by the Hayton Charitable Trust up until 2025, the programme was created to help parents and carers who may not otherwise be able to find affordable childcare during the summer break.

Children aged six to fourteen are selected through referrals from agencies such as Action for Carers and the Family Support Programme; all qualify for free school meals.

The children enjoy a stimulating programme of supervised activities including arts and crafts, sports, bushcraft, science experiments and African drumming. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided and where possible, transport.

To find out more about the camps, email KJohnson-Barr@foxhills.co.uk. You may want to be a sponsor or know someone who’d like to volunteer.

 The Trust is a registered charity (No 1014257); all donations are eligible for Gift Aid via our Just Giving page.
