Golfing Union of Ireland Strategic Review – Survey
The Golfing Union of Ireland (GUI) is developing a strategic plan, which will include consideration of its governance structures, the mapping of the future direction of the organisation and the means to get there. Recognising that the strategy will be shaped by the views of those closely involved with the game, the GUI is seeking your input.
Should you wish to be involved in the process, please take 5 minutes to compete the short survey which is available here:
Those who complete the survey will have the option of entering a free draw for one of three golfing packages for two at Carton House, to include golf tuition, overnight stay, breakfast and a game of golf on one of Carton House’s two championship courses.
Rules of Golf
The R&A have the unenviable task of looking after the rules of golf and to be fair they do their best in promoting knowledge about the rules in an interactive and interesting fashion. As part of this they have a rules quiz on their website which they update regularly. Why not give it a go to see if you are a rules anorak or a rules novice.
