UK Golfing Numbers Continue Upward Path

August 9th, 2017

Although the past few days have seen weather which would discourage even the keenest golfer (far too hot in some places and far too wet in others) we are pleased to report that so far this year golfers have on the whole enjoyed favourable conditions in both the U.K. and the U.S.A.

This weekend sees the final major tournament of the year. Let’s hope that the US PGA Championship is as exciting as its predecessors. Most GBN.com readers will be able to watch the Championship on free-to-view television. Enjoy!
