The Golf Foundation has announced that it is severing all ties with Prince Andrew.
The junior golf charity has made the decision in light of the ensuing controversy surrounding the Duke of York's friendship with convicted US sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
In a short statement obtained by bunkered.co.uk this morning, the organisation said: "The Board of Trustees of the Golf Foundation has taken the decision to end its association with HRH The Duke of York as patron of the charity."
The Golf Foundation is a charity dedicated to the development of playing and the expansion of personal skills amongst all young people, regardless of their background or circumstances, through school and community projects.
WATCH - HOW TO SHOOT LOWER SCORES
The Duke of York had been a patron since 1994. It was one of 27 golf organisations of which the Duke was a patron.
Last week, bunkered.co.uk approached all 27 for comment on their association with Prince Andrew. Less than half responded.
Earlier this week, Prince Andrew announced that he was "temporarily standing back from his patronages" of more than 230 charitable organisations amid the ongoing scandal.
However, with this morning's statement, the Golf Foundation appears to have closed the door on him ever returning to its position with them.
