Golf Information News, Vol 7, No 8, October 2010

Welcome to the latest issue of Golf Information News!
In this issue I have taken a closer look at Golf Course Architecture’s website and report on a new KPMG Report. I’ve also included an article I produced recently and circulated to all the major journals about the golf club history collection – so you may have seen it already!


Golf Club History Collection Grows!

The Institute has been actively searching out the publications of golf clubs over 100 years old for the past five years. These provide a valuable insight into the early years of golf and the work of pioneers such as Harry Colt, James Braid and Alister Mackenzie. This part of the collection now stands at over 400 volumes. For clubs embarking on their own history, it is a useful starting point as there is a great variety in the form and content of these books.

KPMG Publishes The Business of Professional Golf

KPMG Report 'The Business of Professional Tournament Golf'

The purpose of this report – prepared by KPMG’s Golf Advisory Practice – is to chart the economic evolution of the sector and provide insights into the current state of professional tournament golf mainly in the established territories of North America and Europe, while also offering an outlook on the rapidly emerging markets of Asia and South America.
