Europe’s largest golf retailer, American Golf is proud to announce that it will be supporting the Golf Foundation this year.

“We’re real admirers of the work that the Golf Foundation does.  Golf has been an important part of my life since I was 7 years old, so, like a lot of the staff here, I want as many children as possible to experience the same sense of enjoyment that I did teeing off on my local course,” comments Daniel Gathercole, Head of Marketing at American Golf.

The Golf Foundation will be the sole beneficiary of profits from several new events that American Golf will be launching later this year, including the first American Golf Junior Championship.

Sarah Tennyson, the Golf Foundation’s Marketing Manager is also excited to see where the partnership can lead, “We have been impressed to learn about the initiatives that American Golf is launching this year and are delighted that they have chosen to support us.  We are sure that working in partnership we will identify many new mutually beneficial opportunities in the year to come.”

American Golf is working at the centre of the game to develop new initiatives and build relationships to enable more people than ever to have access to golf.  As well as supporting the Golf Foundation and launching its own Junior Championship later this year, American Golf will also continue to work with golf Services’ charity, On Course Foundation.
