Scottish Golf Union to launch drive to

boost club's falling memberships

The Scottish Golf Union is set to launch a new drive aimed at boosting the country's ailing golf club memberships.
Hamish Grey, the chief executive of the Scottish men's amateur game's governing body, admitted that he is anticipating a three per cent drop in membership numbers when figures are released in the coming weeks.
That equates to a fall of around 6,000 people meaning
the SGU would lose almost £42,000 in revenue from annual subscriptions.
To combat the decrease, the SGU has outlined plans for a 'Scottish golf awareness week' in an effort to promote the benefits of membership and encourage more people to join a club.
The wide-ranging campaign, which will start the week after the Masters in mid-April, will also be used to launch the Scottish Golf Card, a scheme which, for a £10 charge, will give club members 50 per cent off green fees at participating venues across the country.
