Growing the Game Insights

February 13th, 2015

This weekend, courtesy of Syngenta, we bring you a short documentary showcasing the successful beginner-to-member women’s golf academy developed by Maidenhead Golf Club. It’s good to be able to report such positive and encouraging news. I am sure that many golf club operators have similar schemes but it’s always possible to pick up new ideas.
