National Golf Month logoThe UK National Golf Month will take place for the second time in May 2015. It will offer free marketing and advertising opportunities to all partnering golf courses, driving ranges and PGA Members to reach over 23 million potential golfers.

NGM May 2015 targets getting 100,000 lapsed golfers and new lady golfers playing golf through the following promotions:

  • Special coaching /playing offers
  • Unique golf club membership offers
  • Open Day deals

A massive national marketing and advertising campaign using radio, magazines, newspapers and social media will drive potential golfers to the website which will go live in January 2015

The event will be supported by most major partners within the golf industry, who will promote it to their members and customers.

Project Director Doug Poole says: “It’s hard to contemplate, but even after the fantastic success of Paul McGinley and our European Ryder Cup Team (and the worldwide dominance of our players in the Majors during 2014), the number of people playing golf is still in decline It’s in our hands to get the UK golfing again.”
