Sport4All is dedicated to promoting inclusion and creating opportunities for people with disability in all aspects of sport. The national award-winning program aims to drive positive change in grassroots sport, ensuring everyone can enjoy the benefits of sport when, where, and how they choose.

Golf NSW oversees 372 clubs and 110 off-course facilities, including driving ranges, mini golf courses, and simulators. In 2023, an impressive 4,609,413 rounds of golf were played, up 23% on the previous year.

Notably, 5.8% of people in NSW play golf, making it one of the top 10 sports for adults in NSW.
