An influential team of Golf organisations which include The European Tour, FEGGA, PGA's of Europe, CMAE, EGCOA, GEO, GCIA and EIGCA, have agreed to expand and promote the ``Grow the Game of Golf´´ website. The aim of the website is to encourage and inspire golf clubs and other golf organisations to help develop the game, particularly at grass roots level.

The ``Grow the Game of Golf´´ website describes best practices within the industry and provides feedback from the leading experts in golf development.

Following its successful launch last year, Tarav Badhwar of the EGCOA will now be taking the website to the next level with the cooperation of all the partnering golf bodies. Tarav has recently completed his Post Graduate studies in Golf Management at Les Roches University in Spain. He was inspired by the growth of golf in India, from where he originates.

About the Grow the Game of Golf Website:

Golf course owners and operators can now find initiatives and information to assist them in their own efforts to organize similar projects at their golf courses.
In addition, there are also a comprehensive range of graphics and statistics, which illustrate player numbers and relative growth in a variety of countries, as well as testimonials from leading European golf organisations and key industry players.
