National Golf Month will be back in May 2015. It targets getting 100,000 extra ladies and men playing golf. It will be sponsored by the British Golf Industry Association and has a full supporting line-up of all the major golf associations and golf companies.

National Golf Month presents focused coaching programmes offered by the Foremost Group PGA Professionals, other supporting PGA Professionals, Play Golf and Golf Club Open Days (covering a multitude of opportunities for new players to get on the course).

Big Names Continue to Support NGM

Paul McGinley, who capped a triumphant 2014 by winning Coach of the Year at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards on Sunday, is now the National Golf Month men’s face of professional golf – joining top lady professional Charlie Hull.

Paul said: “I am delighted to be supporting National Golf Month, May 2015. Golf faces many challenges in these times as competition with other sport and social activities intensifies. Golf is a game that has given me, and my family, great pleasure, health benefits and opportunities to meet some amazing people. I would encourage everybody to get behind this project as we endeavour to see more people enjoy the great benefits and fun that this game has to offer.”

National Golf Month Offering

National Golf Month offers every golf club and PGA Professional free marketing through a Bauer Media radio and publications campaign. The campaign is designed to reach over 23 million of the golfing and non-golfing public.

Special Focus

This year National Golf Month will focus on ‘Player Mentoring’ because going on a golf course can be intimidating. ‘Get a Friend Golfing in May’ will be a key driving message.

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 and Open Day deals
