Golf Australia recognises the important role that clubs play for the future of the game.
Golf Australia's 2013-2016 Strategic Plan has identified Club Viability as a key issue and has committed to supporting the health of clubs through the implementation of a ‘whole of sport’ Club Support and Development Strategy.
The strategy was developed jointly by representatives from golf’s key industry bodies including Golf Australia, State Associations, Golf Management Australia, PGA of Australia, Australian Golf Course Superintendents Association and the Australian Sports Commission with the goal to improve the capability, financial performance and sustainability of clubs.
One initiative of the strategy is the development of an online community from which club volunteers, management, staff and contractors can connect and obtain valuable, relevant and current information and resources regarding the operations of clubs.
The online portal is now under development and will be launched in late September 2014.
