GolfBusinessNews.com Update Mark II

July 14th, 2017

Whilst the reaction from those viewing Wednesday’s Newsletter on their phones and tablets was outstandingly good, for some readers who were looking on desk-top computers the experience was less satisfactory. Once they went through to the website itself, however, reactions were almost unanimously favourable.

We have tried to correct those problems in today’s edition. I am confident that I will soon discover if we have succeeded, although I am aware that there is still work to be done!
