GOLF: A EUROPEAN SUCCESS2 min read


Posted on: 17th Apr 2013

The dream of every European professional golfer is to represent their continent with both men and women coming together for The Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup.

Golf is unique as the only major sport represented by European teams and while success on the field of play represents the pinnacle in a sporting context, golf’s success can be felt far and wide throughout Europe.

Golf: A European Success is an exhibition taking place at the European Parliament in Brussels from May 6-8, 2013, celebrating golf’s contribution to Europe in economic, environmental, social and sporting terms.

Organised by the European Golf Association Golf Course Committee – a partnership of bodies across the golf industry including the European Golf Association, The R&A, The European Tour, European Golf Course Owners Association, Confederation of Professional Golf, European Institute of Golf Course Architects, Federation of European Golf Greenkeepers Associations, Club Managers Association of Europe – the exhibition will showcase golf’s sustainability.

Under the patronage of The European Parliamentary Golfing Society (EPGS), Golf: A European Success offers the opportunity to liaise and interact with European Parliamentarians and Commissioners on matters of sustainability and golf.

The exhibition highlights the sport’s impact across Europe – from an economic perspective the golf industry contributes €15billion to the European economy annually; from a social perspective 7.9 million Europeans play golf annually; and environmentally there are more than 6000 courses in Europe, up to 70% of the area of which can be used for habitat creation.

The Ryder Cup and Solheim Cups, both in European hands after respective victories over the United States at Medinah, Chicago, last September and Killeen Castle, Ireland, the previous year, will be on display to represent Golf: A European Success.
