Coming Soon: A New Strategic Plan for England Golf

March 17th, 2017

With more than 400 at Lord’s for last night’s presentation of the England Golf Awards, the ceremony was indeed a glittering occasion, but perhaps the most exciting announcement of the whole evening was confirmation that England Golf will launch its new Strategic Plan to Grow the Game on 6th June. The whole of June is slated as ‘Women’s Golf Month’, to be followed in July by ‘Family Golf Month’.

More information is promised via www.englandgolf.org and, of course, www.golfbusinessnews.com
