Enter our Women’s Participation Project Competition!

CLICK HERE TO ENTER THE COMPETITION Golf Australia and the Australian Sports Commission have embarked on a research project to develop a new innovative golf program/initiative to attract female participants into the game. Participation in golf is moving towards greater casual play and increased non-club membership. Since 2000, the number of playing members at golf clubs in Australia has been slowly declining at an average of 1.48% per annum. There are several reasons for this decline which include a time poor society, cost and an increasing number of other emerging recreational pursuits. Female representation in golf accounts for approximately 20% of the total participants in the game. Therefore there is an opportunity for golf to address this under-representation in the sport and increase overall golf participation. In order to assist this research project, Golf Australia is running a competition to uncover the most innovative idea to drive increased female participation in golf. The winning entry, to be judged by a selection panel appointed by Golf Australia, will receive a Drummond Golf voucher valued at $1,000.00. Entries close on Friday 6 September at 5.00pm
