Mass response to EGU/ELGA survey

8.30am 11th May 2004 - Management Topics

Following distribution of the biennial Golf Club Membership Questionnaire 2004, the response from EGU/ELGA affiliated golf clubs has been excellent, with almost 50% of the 1,910 completing the questionnaire within the first six weeks.
The aims of the governing bodies are to monitor membership trends within golf clubs in England, to assess the impact of current grass roots initiatives and to respond to changes as golf evolves by strategically focusing resources.
Richard Flint, EGU golf development manager comments, “The positive response to the questionnaire highlights the importance golf clubs put on monitoring membership trends and it is vital that the sport continues to act upon the findings.”
As part of the process, any affiliated golf club returning the questionnaire by the set deadline was entered into a prize draw to win coaching funds for their junior section. The following golf clubs have been successful:

  • £300 – Glen Gorse, Leicester
  • £200 – Kirkbymoorside, York
  • £200 – Sand Moor, Leeds
  • £100 – Bury, Lancashire
  • £100 – Sandwell Park, West Bromwich
  • £100 – Hatchford Brook, Birmingham

Golf clubs yet to return the questionnaire should still do so as the results will not be published until later on this year. A copy of the ‘national key findings and trends‘ booklet will be produced and detailed information at regional and county level will also be available.
The biennial Golf Club Membership Questionnaire is part of the EGU’s and ELGA’s ongoing golf development research strategy to aid long-term planning.
