Scottish Golf Ltd - 4 Year Strategy

What will SGL's New Strategy Deliver?

Scottish Golf Ltd - 4 Year Strategy

Scottish Golf Limited (previously known as Scottish Golf Union) is proposing a new 4 year Strategy aimed at rejuvenating the game between 2018 and 2022. This proposed Strategy will be voted on at a Special General Meeting on Saturday the 2nd of December 2017.

The reason given for this Strategy is to address the downturn in participation, commercial income and public funding to reinvigorate the game at all levels.  To achieve this, SGU have made a number of recommendations in their plan to ensure a stronger sport in Scotland with the recommendations proposed to all stakeholders at a Special General Meeting (SGM) on Saturday 2 December in Stirling.

In addition to a review of the Scottish Golf’s Articles of Association, to further align the game after the recent amalgamation of the Scottish Golf Union and Scottish Ladies' Golfing Association, SGL are proposing an increase in the National Affiliation Fee. The proposed increase will see the levy increasing from £11.25 to £24.00 (£12.75 increase).  SGL have stipulated the main reason for the proposed increase is the cut in Central Government funding.

The links below provide all the information that is available from SGL.  Your Board of Directors have asked that you consider all of the information provided and come back with any questions you may have.  As a club we must vote on whether we want to support this new strategy or not and every member that currently pays the £11.25 affiliation fee will be sent an email or contacted individually for their vote.

Our next Board Meeting is on 17th October when we will be discussing this topic fully and agreeing our Club's position.  Our decision will then be submitted in time for the P&KCGU AGM on 12th November.
