GUI would like to hear from Club Members aged between 25-40 regarding the One Governing Body initiative.
Dear Hon Sec/Club Communications Officer,
The GUI and the ILGU have made significant progress in the discussions around the creation of One Governing Body (OGB) for Golf in Ireland, since the Discussions began in November 2015.
The OGB Discussions Group will be consulting once again with affiliated clubs and officials but would also like to engage with a more focused segment of golfer. This consultation will ensure golfers/non-golfers falling into the age bracket of 25-40 will have their say and will help shape the draft proposal for OGB for Golf in Ireland.
People falling into this age category tend to be time poor and the DG would like to seek feedback from current and past golfers on how to develop the game and make it more attractive to this group. It is crucial that the OGB engages with people who have left the game due to a lack of time and other commitments.
The consultation meeting will be facilitated by Jane Williams, who is a highly experienced independent consultant. Jane will facilitate the meeting in a way which allows attendees to share open and honest feedback on the topics being discussed. Comments and thoughts shared by participants on the draft proposal will not be attributed back to any individual.
The separate dates and venues are listed below. Please follow the links below to register for one of the three sessions:
