This means positioning ourselves at the heart of golf and working with key organisations such as the BGIA. It is in everyone’s best interests to work together to reach new golfers and to revitalise the game. It is a big challenge, but one that we are very much looking forward to being part of.”
Companies related to the golf industry, that are not directly engaged in the manufacture, wholesaling and/or distribution of golf products and services can all become associate members of the association.
