Growing the Game

June 6th, 2014

May was ‘National Golf Month’ in England, Scotland and Wales and we hope to be able to bring you a ‘wrap-up’ report next week. Growing the Game of Golf should be a full-time pre-occupation of us all. We look forward to reporting on future initiatives. GBN.com is more than happy to provide a platform where great ideas can be given publicity.
