Regional Forums

To support our strategy to develop and grow the game in Scotland, Scottish Golf will shortly be supporting the launch of four Regional Forum Groups for which we are seeking enthusiastic golfers who are club members to join these groups.

The forums will operate on a geographic basis, covering North, South, East & West and are intended to be a platform where opportunities to grow the game and address some of the challenges clubs and the game are facing can be debated on a local basis. Feedback will be consolidated by Scottish Golf with the aim of refining our strategic priorities and support services provided to members.

Each Regional Forum will operate with a core agenda pulled together by a Working Group consisting of stakeholders from across the game thus ensuring that the key issues are debated and fed back in a consistent manner. There will also be an opportunity for local issues to be addressed via additional agenda items and will be determined by each region.

Regional Forums: Club Representatives Wanted

We are looking for two Club representatives (Committee Members or club golfers) and two Club Manager representatives to participate in each of the four Regional Forums and would welcome applications from people who have the desire and passion to support and contribute to the development of the game in our country – the Home of Golf.

How often will the Regional Forums meet?

In establishing these forums, the Working Group recommend that the Regional Forums meet three times per annum (optimum timings March, June, September) and that there is a National Forum towards the end of each calendar year.

Who will be represented on the Regional Forums?

The composition of the Regional Forums will incorporate representatives from Golf Clubs, County Associations, Area Associations and Scottish Golf and we envisage each of the Regional meetings being attended by around 12-16 people.

How do I apply?

To apply to join the Regional Forum in your respective geographic area, please send an email to k.sharp@scottishgolf.org outlining the club that you represent, along with a note of what you would hope to contribute to the group and any previous experience that is relevant. Applications will close on Thursday 31st May 2018 and it is anticipated that the initial meetings of the Regional Forums will take place late June/early July.
