No Apology

April 3rd, 2015

With only four weeks to go until the beginning of the U.K.’s National Golf Month I am going to repeat some information that I gave a few weeks ago (and I make no apology for that).

Golf clubs and golf ranges in the U K can take advantage of all the free publicity that the golf industry has arranged on their behalf by signing up on the appropriate website. 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.

We are always delighted to receive such stories so don’t be shy, tell us about your bright ideas.
