I am delighted to have an opportunity to mention the work of The Grow Golf Fund which was set up in April 2007. The four founder members Acushnet, Callaway, Ping and TaylorMade-adidas golf have since been joined by Brand Fusion, Eaton Golf Pride, Motocaddy, Peter Millar, SPORTS MARKETING SURVEYS, Wilson and Yonex.
Any British Golf Industry Association (BGIA) member can join the Fund by committing to pay a contribution that is based on their annual turnover. Organisations such as The Golf Foundation, England Golf Partnership and National Golf Month have all benefitted from Grow Golf Funds.
