Get on board to Grow Golf

12.46am 18th December 2007 - Corporate

Five of golf’s most successful manufacturing companies have announced their continued support for the British Golf Industry Association’s innovative Grow Golf campaign and stated their desire for more companies to join the initiative.

Acushnet Europe, Callaway Golf, PING Europe, Sunderland of Scotland and TaylorMade-adidas Golf all pay an annual levy based on their UK turnover into the Grow Golf fund and they are actively seeking further partners to expand an ambitious scheme aimed at stimulating golf participation across all age groups, geographic regions and social backgrounds within the UK.

“The four founding brands started the ball rolling when they provided the original seed fund back in April 2007 and subsequently Sunderland of Scotland has also committed its support to the cause,” said Graham Guy, chairman of the Grow Golf Trustees.

“Grow Golf is already starting to provide real support to grass roots golf in Britain and we believe that with further support from the industry it can become a major contributor to the future growth of the game.”
