National Golf Month

Published:

May is National Golf Month, when 100,000 new and lapsed golfers will be tempted to take up golf again with some fantastic deals and offers at clubs across the country. Hundreds of clubs have already put their activities on www.nationalgolfmonth.com – and you're invited to take part.

Just pop in your postcode to find something near you, including discounted green fees, taster sessions and lesson offers. It's the perfect opportunity to get your friends or family to try golf. 

National Golf Month (NGM) – a British Golf Industry initiative – is an amazing event where all the leading golf companies and associations are joining together to increase the numbers playing golf.  

Support for National Golf Month has seen all the major Golf Unions and Associations, Golf Clubs, Driving Ranges, Golf Manufacturers and PGA Professionals sign up to work together to reverse the trend and get more players on course to enjoy the game.

Bubba Watson’s rallying cry that he “plays golf because I just love the game” coincides with the launch of National Golf Month which aims to get an extra 100,000 lapsed or new golfers playing the game in May. 

Watson, who captured his second Masters title on Sunday, declared “I don’t play golf because I want people to tell me how great I am at it. I don’t play golf to make a living. I play it because I just love the game, and I want to help it grow. It has given me my values and everything I have ever owned in my life.”

Sir Nick Faldo, three times Open champion and three times Masters champion, said: “I am very excited to be supporting National Golf Month. It is a special effort to get thousands of golfers playing actively or learning to play golf. The game provides an eternal number of self-challenges; an endless stream of goals to beat your own best. It’s a lifelong journey in sport and I fully support this effort which provides opportunity through golf on all levels.”

Charley Hull, who was introduced to golf aged two and won Rookie of the Year on the Ladies European Tour in 2013 when she became the youngest competitor to play in the Solheim Cup, said: “Golf is a fun game you can enjoy with all your family and friends, so use the great offers available during National Golf Month and get out playing this coming May.”
