Scottish Golf has published its 2020 Annual Review which looks back over an unprecedented year in the organisation’s history.
The Review reports a 6.1% rise in club membership over the last 12 months to a new four-year high of just over 190,000.
It also showcases the extensive work carried out by Scottish Golf during the COVID-19 pandemic to support clubs in Scotland. This included over £1.2m in financial assistance for clubs, liaising with the government to keep playing the game safely through the pandemic, the launch of the World Handicap System, and the ongoing utilisation of technology to support clubs through Zoom webinars, Hive learning resources, VMS and the Scottish Golf App.
Karin Sharp, Chief Operating Officer at Scottish Golf, said: “Last year was an incredibly tough year, but one in which we delivered significant improvements in our focused services to our members. This year will be about continuing to build on these improvements and to support our affiliated clubs no matter what happens.”
