Growing the Game

March 24th, 2015

The countdown to the U.K.’s National Golf Month in May has already begun and today we publish details of how golf clubs and golf ranges can take advantage of all the free publicity that the golf industry has arranged on their behalf. There are special websites for both golf clubs and also golf professionals.

Golf operators not based in the U.K. will always find a source of practical advice within our archive of stories about Growing the Game.

This week I particular commend the story about the new Community Links that will soon be opening in New Mexico. There is no shortage of great ideas.
