Golfing Bodies Launch EuropeanGolf.eu2 min read


Posted on: 1st Jul 2013

Following the success of the historic first golf exhibition in the European Parliament last month celebrating “Golf – a European Success”, the website www.europeangolf.eu celebrating golf’s contribution to Europe in social, economic and environmental terms has been launched. 

The exhibition offered a platform for members of the EGA GCC – a partnership of bodies 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 – to liaise and interact with European Parliamentarians and Commissioners on matters of sustainability and golf.

www.europeangolf.eu carries that message forward with more information about EGA GCC and the importance of golf to the European economy, with the industry contributing €15billion annually, to the environment with more than 6,000 courses across Europe, of which up to 70% can be used for natural habitats, and to society with 7.9 million Europeans playing golf.

The exhibition in Brussels, hosted by the European Parliamentarians Golfing Society, highlighted golf’s many benefits and brought the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup trophies together in celebrating the success of the European teams in their respective matches against the United States at Medinah last year and Killeen Castle in 2011.

Some 100 delegates from across the European golf industry came together for the exhibition and a series of break-out sessions exploring the challenges and opportunities for golf throughout the Europe. The presentations from these sessions are available on www.europeangolf.eu.

More information about the EGA GCC and the role it plays in building relationships in the EU, raising awareness and working to position golf as the leader in sustainable recreation can be found at www.europeangolf.eu.
