Golf Club Membership Questionnaire
As part of England Golf's research strategy, the Golf Club Membership Questionnaire is distributed to all affiliated golf clubs every two years.
The 2014 Golf Club Membership Questionnaire was distributed to all affiliated golf clubs in February 2014. The collated responses to this questionnaire will provide a comprehensive picture of what is happening in English golf clubs, including trends over time, key themes and importantly areas of best practice that we can share through initiatives at club level. It is also a vital tool to help measure the key club actions outlined in the England Golf Strategic Plan 2014-2017 that will help us to grow the game together.
Information collected from the Questionnaire is published in a Results Booklet later in 2014.
The Results Booklet from the 2012 Questionnaire is available and can be purchased from the online shop for £2.00. The 2012 Booklet and previous Results Booklets, from 2006 onwards, are also available to download on the link to the right of the page.
The Questionnaire has enabled England Golf to direct resources and provide support to golf clubs and counties (view examples of how this data has been used).
Results from the 2012 Questionnaire show that 81% of the 352 clubs which have maintained or increased their membership figures over the last two years are working with their County Golf Partnership and/or are involved in England Golf programmes.
County and regional breakdowns are also produced following each Questionnaire. The 2012 County Breakdowns are now available, please see the link to the right of the page.
