Working for Golf conference video now online

12.20am 8th May 2009 - Exhibitions & Conferences

The R&A has produced a short film about the Working for Golf conference, which was held in St Andrews last week.

Over 140 delegates from 60 countries joined representatives from PGAs around the world and the PGA European Tour to discuss and debate the most important issues in the game today.

Among the topics covered in the film, which runs for just under five minutes, are the bid for golf to be included in the 2016 Olympic Games; drug testing in golf; a project, supported by the R&A which uses golf for community and social development in Japeri, Brazil; and golf’s responsibility to manage sustainably the land upon which it is played.

The film can be accessed via the R&A’s website
