The Wales Golf New2Golf Back2Golf beginner scheme provides clubs with funding (up to £450) to run a membership recruitment drive and aims to recruit new members who are either new to golf or those who have played in the past and are looking to join a club. It supports individuals through coaching, playing opportunities and social events prior to recruiting them to full membership.
Marketing resources and promotion via the Golf Wales website is also provided. Downloads of the campaigns can be found on the ‘promoting your club section‘ of the website.
All participants become Wales Golf New2Golf members and receive a New2Golf member benefit pack, which includes coaching vouchers, a welcome book plus more.
Research shows (based on average New2Golf scheme figures), that running an effective New2Golf scheme can generate the club around £10,000 over 2 years.
Focus groups have taken place with participants to learn from their New2Golf journey. A simple resource has been produced with hints and tips for clubs on how to run great New2Golf schemes. To view click here.
