Connecting local government with Australia's golf industry

To ensure engagement with local government occurs in a targeted and valuable way, Golf Australia is currently developing a plan for golf to influence and partner with local government to educate them on the benefits of golf to the local community. This presentation will highlight key findings from a recent survey distributed to LGAs about golf, and aims to kick start the discussion around how the golf industry can work collaboratively with local government to protect our golf facilities, whilst ensuring they continue to provide an overall community benefit.
