Please see below an invitation for golfers and former golfers to attend a One Governing Body Consultation session. We would ask you to circulate this to your membership and anyone interested can register via the links below.
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 Discussions Group for One Governing Body would like to hear from golfers and former golfers who are playing less or have stopped playing to understand the initiatives that OGB could undertake to attract you back, or to make it easier for you to play more. We know your time is constrained and precious. We will keep the session to an hour and a half max, but would really value your input.
You are invited to attend one of three sessions in Clontarf, Cork or Strandhill Golf Clubs.
The separate dates and venues are listed below. Please follow the links below to register for the session most suitable to you:
- Tuesday 11th July (6-7:30pm), Clontarf Golf Club - Click HERE
- Friday 11th August (6-7:30pm), Cork Golf Club – Click HERE
- Monday 14th August (6-7:30pm), Strandhill Golf Club – Click HERE
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.
In early 2017, the DG established eleven Working Groups (WG) in areas of acute importance, such as Volunteerism, Championships and Game Development, to name but a few. Eight WG reports have now been received and key themes are emerging.
In the initial round of consultation in April/May 2016, the Discussions Group (DG) received strong feedback that OGB is a good idea and if done well, will provide a solid base for strengthening the game of golf in Ireland into the future.
We wish to thank you, in advance, for your cooperation and we look forward to meeting you at the consultation session.
