National Golf Month Is Back

January 20th, 2017

“Women should be a higher proportion of the playing base, which is why increasing the number of women playing the sport will be the top priority for National Golf Month in 2017. If we can boost the number of women who play the sport, then we can also revitalize the playing base of the sport through increased family participation too.”

So says Doug Poole, Director of National Golf Month, and I couldn’t put it better myself. This initiative, which started with the British Golf Industry Association, already has an impressive group of supporters but there is still time for more to join in (and you know who you are!)
