‘Raising Our Game’

June 24th, 2015

Many readers will be familiar with the words ‘Raising our Game’ as the title of England Golf’s Strategic Plan for 2014 – 2017 – a Plan upon which yesterday’s announcement in London has brought new media attention.

The same words could equally be applied to today’s announcement in Johannesburg that September’s Africa Golf Summit will seek to boost the popularity of golf across the continent, starting with three key pilot projects in Southern Africa, West Africa and East Africa.

Golf administrators 5,600 miles (9,000 kilometres) apart have many things in common.
