Public Golf Facilities Australia gets industry launch
Public Golf Facilities Australia (PGFA), a new not-for-profit group that will provide its members with direction for best-practice operations, has been launched to the golf industry at the 2016 Golf Business Forum.
Focusing on public sector golf facilities – where two thirds of Australia’s 1.2 million active golfers participate in their sport – PGFA will be representing the businesses behind an important pathway in Australian golf, particularly for new golfers.
Wanting to develop common strategies in order to generate greater participation in golf, PGFA will operate with a national focus aiming to give Australia’s public golf facilities a united voice.
Introducing the new body, PGFA Director Anthony Lawrence stated “the PGFA will play an advocate role in the golf industry for facilities that cater for public golfers, taking an active role in lobbying appropriate private and public institutions regarding key issues relevant to its members’ facilities such as access to water, land tax, buying groups and insurance.
“We will provide assistance and information to members, including customer and financial benchmarking, and techniques to enhance profitability for members.
“And, importantly, we’ll get an understanding of participation trends within these facilities that will help direct strategies for promoting and developing both men’s and women’s involvement in golf.” Coincinding with its launch, PGFA has been attracting membership and support from public access facility owners, general managers and management groups from across Australia."
PGFA is inviting applications for membership of its Board up until 30th September.
Being held in Melbourne today (25th July) and tomorrow at the Melbourne Park Function Centre, the inaugural Golf Business Forum is featuring leading industry participants and content-specialists addressing key issues facing the business of golf businesses.
