National Golf Month 2015 logoThe BGIA along with Bauer Media is proud to announce the further development of National Golf Month, with the confirmation of National Golf Month 2015.

After the successful pilot of National Golf Month last year, the event is back!

2015 has the potential to be a huge year for Golf, with interest surrounding the sport continuing to grow with the questions coming thick and fast:

  • Will McIlroy complete the grand slam?
  • Will Tiger Wood’s comeback be successful?
  • Will Charley Hull win a major?
  • Will a Golfer win BBC Sports Personality?

The Golf sector has aligned in 2015 to take full advantage of a year promising so much, with all Industry partners signing up. The objectives of NGM 2015 are to remove the barriers to participation, bring back lapsed golfers, engage more lady golfers, and generally welcome families to their local clubs…..the objective is clear, make Golf accessible to everyone!

Championed by Paul McGinley, the inspirational winning captain of the European Team for the 2014 Ryder Cup, National Golf Month creates a unique opportunity to breakdown the barriers and stigma often associated with Golf. Throughout the month of May Golf Clubs and Professionals throughout the UK will be hosting special National Golf Month club open days, taster sessions (free from any charges!), coaching sessions for families, ladies and men, as well as Individual lessons.

Patrick Horton, Managing Director Sport, Bauer Media, said, “Bauer Media is delighted to be extending its relationship with National Golf Month and we are very much looking forward to helping in opening the doors to Golf. This is a call to everyone that has ever had an interest, or those that have simply never had the time, to give Golf a go!”

Doug Poole, Past Chairman, BGIA, said “We are excited to have the whole industry working together in an effort to make National Golf Month a success. National Golf Month represents Golf’s governing bodies, the industry brands, Golf Clubs and PGA professionals working together to open the doors to Golf. My hope is that we see people will go down to their local clubs and have fun enjoying all the lifestyle benefits golf brings.”
