Golf Industry News - Jeremy Tomlinson

Last week's introduction of the new World Handicap System in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales has been widely praised across the industry, although there have been reports of teething troubles as clubs and golfers get to grips with the finer details of the new system, which went live on November 2.

Jeremy Tomlinson, the Chief Executive of England Golf, has published a statement in which he says that he will be lobbying the UK government in the strongest possible terms to keep England’s golf courses open as the country prepares to go into a second lockdown on November 5.

England Golf has announced an investment of up to £500,000 to help support clubs that narrowly missed out on a grant as part of the original Covid-19 Support Fund.
