Gill's Golf Blog on Golf Participation

GOLF PARTICIPATION IS DECREASING IN THE WORLD'S LEADING GOLF MARKETS - LET'S JOIN FORCES AND TAKE ACTION!

KPMG’s recently published Golf Participation in Europe 2010 survey has brought to our attention some shocking statistics, showing tendencies of decreasing participation in some of the world’s leading golf markets. The report has also addressed what actions would need to be taken for the sake of the golf industry’s further development, including:
Educating the young, promoting the game among the female population and making golf a ‘family’ activity.
Building more playable courses to sit alongside championship courses, making the game more attractive, accessible AND AFFORDABLE to a wider cross-section of people.
Bringing golf to schools, tailoring the clubhouse to women and families and offering more family-friendly services.
Populating the game for which joint forces are needed.
Decreasing participation is an obvious sign for golf course operators and owners that golf should no longer be the game of the elite. It should be a game that is affordable and accessible for all.

IS GOLF DEVELOPING ALONG THE RIGHT PATH? MANY OF THE EMERGING COUNTRIES IN EUROPE WANT THE GAME TO BE ELITE!

LET’S START WITH THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS

What are the main barriers for people who want to start to play?
There are too many alternatives available, particularly for young people – what will attract them?
How can we maximize on the ‘MTV complex’ – the short term concentration of people today – everything needs to happen in ‘real time’?
The accelerated speed of life and the lack of available time – 2 hours is a long time to dedicate to one function it seems these days - is a challenge.
How can the increasing gap between pro’s and beginners be bridged when it comes to course design (length, different golf balls etc.)?

COME ON GBC – WE ARE A JOINT FORCE - HAVE YOUR SAY.
