The R&A - Working for Golf

Golf Research

The R&A works with its affiliates and other organisations in the golf industry to produce research reports and insights on the sport.

European Participation Report

The R&A and the European Golf Association (EGA) have published a report to provide a detailed overview of golf participation in Europe.

The European Golf Participation Report includes data on golf participation in 47 countries where the national association is a member of the EGA and under the governance jurisdiction of The R&A.

The data, which includes the total number of registered golfers in each country, has been gathered and analysed to produce statistical trends, valuable insights and best practice case studies for the industry to utilise. 

Several case studies have also been provided in the report to demonstrate best practice and progress being made by national associations to boost participation.
