OTHER DEVELOPMENTS IN THE PIPELINE.
Golf’s governing bodies in Australia are looking to amalgamate into a single governing body, OneGolf, in order to provide a ‘rationalisation of governance’ of golf in Australia. Essentially this will entail a single governing body for all golf in Australia with Divisions for each state or territory. It will not change how the Victorian Golf League (VGL) operates, at least in the short to mid term, and there is no intention to change the ‘grass roots’ administration of the game. The main aim is to consolidate into one governing body to maximise sponsorship potential and government funding, being able to market the game in a consistent fashion and enable more marketing and growth of the game through increased internal funding via savings in reduced administration costs. Only NSW and WA have not agreed to the concept in principle at this stage but Golf Australia is looking to move ahead regardless and should be in place around mid 2018 but it requires constitutional change of Golf Australia and the member states and this won’t happen without approval of the Golf Victoria memberships, including the VGL.
