What do golfers think about their state or regional golf associations? NGF surveyed hundreds of association members and non-members and the results published here are intended to provide helpful guidance to association administrators. This report brings clarity to the value golfers place on associations and their benefits, shedding light on how they can better attract and retain a healthy membership base. Are you promoting the benefits that are most important to golfers in your area? If they think of you as only tournament administrators and a handicapping/course rating service, you have the opportunity to grow by engaging them at a higher level.
