BGIA announces National Golf Month, May 2015

NGM website

The BGIA 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 and the questions coming thick and fast:
• Will McIlroy to complete the grand slam?
• Will Tiger Wood’s comeback be successful?
• Will Charley Hull win a major?
• Will a Golfer win BBC Sports Personality?

Now is the key time for all Golf club venues and Professionals to load their offers onto the NGM website. We have around 4 weeks left to populate the website before all the advertising and marketing begins in earnest. We are aiming to reach over 24 million members of the public in the build up to May 2015 and golfing facilities are essential in creating the impact needed to get over 100,000 new players participating this May.

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 stigmas often associated with Golf. Throughout the month of May UK Golf Clubs and Professionals 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.

National Golf Month is 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, Former 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 opening the doors to golf. My hope is that we see people go down to their local clubs and get involved.”
