Europe United!

June 27th, 2014

That’s not a headline you read very often, if at all these days, but when it comes to golf the whole Continent has been acting as one unit for many years – think European Tour, Ryder Cup, Solheim Cup. This week we bring news that European Golf’s leading administrative bodies have united to launch a pioneering initiative that will help ensure the sport of golf delivers the greatest combined economic, social and environmental value in the years ahead. I’ll vote for that!
