More about new initiatives for Golf in Europe

May 8th, 2015

Last week. I wrote about ‘Golf Europe’ and ‘GoGolf’. This week I am pleased to report that this initiative, which is designed to engage young people in golf at a pan-European level and enhance the evidence base of the health benefits of golf, has received funding from the European Commission. GoGolf indeed!
