UK Golf Federation Supports ‘Open Access’

October 10th, 2018

More information is emerging from the UK Golf Federation about its intention to represent the ‘independent golfer’ who wants to be free to play a variety of courses. The recently appointed CEO for UKGF, Doug Poole, has a distinguished record of promoting the game and we look forward to bringing you news about the new initiatives from UKGF members, of whom there are estimated to be more than 800 plus stand-alone golf ranges too.
