National Golf Month is back!

January 16th, 2015

Championed by Paul McGinley, the inspirational winning captain of the European Team for the 2014 Ryder Cup, National Golf Month creates a unique opportunity to give Golf a go. With the experience gained from last year’s pilot, the whole UK golf industry now has the opportunity of working together in an effort to make National Golf Month a success. We fully support this initiative.
