Welcome to ChairNetwork.golf

Providing Governance, Insight and Networking for the Golf Industry

Empowering the decision-makers to make informed choices

ChairNetwork.golf is an organisation created to enable the key decision makers within golf clubs – the Chairmen and Chairwomen – to have an accessible source of information, peer support and a forum for the exchange of ideas and information, to aid in the successful running of their golf clubs.

We aim to foster the sharing of knowledge, best practice and increasing awareness  of the challenges influencing the golf industry and the support available to golf clubs and their volunteers.

If you are the Chair, or an appropriate senior figure at your club, we can provide you with contacts, connections and opportunities both online and offline.

Our first event will be at Beeston Hills Golf Club, Nottingham on Wednesday 20th June. Once you have registered for ChairNetwork.golf you will receive your invitation to this event. In the run up to the event we will provide you with  information about ChairNetwork.golf and, as a member, you will be subscribed to our monthly newsletter.

Join now to benefit from access to our exclusive community.

“We have long recognised the  importance of the role and the increasing responsibility that the chair of the club face.

They are at the forefront of change and ChairNetwork.golf will provide an important route in ensuring they are supported by all sectors of the industry.

We look forward to working with the chair of the golf club to foster an understanding of the role a PGA Professional can play within the golf club and how the PGA can support clubs and help grow the game.”

Robert Maxfield Chief executive The Professional Golfers’ Association

“England Golf is delighted to support ChairNetwork.golf. As part of our ambition to grow the game of golf in England it is vital to provide our affiliated golf clubs with high-quality support for their business and the opportunity to engage with key decision makers such as Chairmen and women will be valuable.”

Richard Flint Participation and Club Support Director

In addition to the support of our partners, the importance of ChairNetwork.golf is also recognised by the Golf Club Managers’ Association.

“The GCMA support ChairNetwork.golf initiative, which will provide a platform for the group to build a network and community to contribute to the direction and development of their respective clubs”

Bob Williams Chief Executive Golf Club Managers’ Association

“Golf is almost unique across sport in that it is delivered facility by facility. The way the individual golf facility is run is therefore absolutely critical to the success of the sport, The day to day responsibility falls to the golf club staff – greenkeepers, administration, management and PGA professionals – but they can only perform effectively if the leadership and governance in the club is strong, visionary, consistent and dynamic. The role of golf club chair is fundamental to the success of golf clubs and we at BIGGA wholeheartedly support this initiative to develop a network of chairmen and chairwomen who can share good practice in a bid to have strong clubs and a growing sport.”

Jim Croxton Chief Executive Officer BIGGA
