EGU Marketing Workshops 2007

12.00pm 17th October 2007 - Management Topics

Commercial pressures facing golf clubs are greater today than perhaps they have ever been. Recent research undertaken by the English Golf Union has highlighted a number of key business issues that are a concern to club managers, owners and their committees:
• Total club membership numbers are static
• There is an increasing number of clubs actively seeking new members
• Attracting casual green fee customers, society and corporate days is becoming more and more competitive.

The EGU Club Services team is therefore providing a series of workshops for EGU affiliated clubs to tap into and help improve their marketing techniques and effectiveness. These workshops will be delivered in conjunction with the EGU’s partners Golf Unlimited, who have over 10 years experience of working in the golf media and the wider golf industry. The proposed agenda for the workshops can be viewed at

Everyone who attends a workshop will receive a full information pack containing details of the presentations, worked examples from the day and references for further information. The cost to attend is only £30 per delegate which includes tea/coffee plus lunch. Spaces are limited to a maximum of 2 delegates per club.
