The Ladies Golf Union is looking for ladies to complete an online survey, helping the governing body and GB&I national organisations to respond more effectively to the needs of the ladies game.
Already 1,200 lady golfers, chosen at random to be a statistically significant sample of the GB&I population, have been surveyed in telephone interviews and more than 370 golf club secretaries have competed a questionnaire online. The response rate for golf club secretaries at 15%, of 2,500 available respondents, is well above average for online polling.
Now it’s the turn of all remaining registered lady club golfers, all 220,000 of them, to give their views. Simply visit www.lgu.org and click on the survey ticker at the top of the page.
The study, part funded by The R&A, is the biggest of its of kind ever to be undertaken by The LGU. Top line results are expected at the end of the summer covering issues such as gender equality in clubs, equal career opportunities in golf and men and women competing on equal terms in elite competition.
The online survey will be posted on the LGU site throughout the Weetabix Women’s British Open at Royal Birkdale 28-31 July and for approximately three weeks beyond the championship. Global sports researcher Comperio, part of the International Management Group (IMG), are responsible for the survey, which is both secure and confidential.
