VISION 2020, the European Golf Course Owners Association (EGCOA) latest research project, which has been developed to create a roadmap for the sustainable development of the European Golf industry, has delivered its results in a groundbreaking and interactive new website

The website explores the key opportunities for the future of European golf, Friendship, Flexibility, Family & Fun. Each opportunity is detailed within the site with underpinning research and real life examples of organisations and golf facilities that are leading the way.

In addition to providing global trends, underpinning research and leading industry best practices and initiatives, is a leading platform for European golf industry statistics.

In the dedicated European statistics page the development of golf has been analyzed in terms of participation, growth, demographics, rounds and courses. Forecasts have been compiled to highlight the developmental trends until 2020.

Over the coming year the EGCOA will release a monthly VISION 2020 newsletter which will include a featured country golf development snapshot along with updates added to the site on the key opportunities for the future of European golf.
