The number of commercial golf courses and driving ranges affiliated with the UK Golf Federation (UKGF) has reached 936, after breaking the threshold of 900 this summer. The federation offers its members 13 “business support services” free of charge as well as a reservation service for venues and courses through its website. Doug Poole, chief executive, said the non-profit’s services and All-Party Parliamentary Group have helped keep “golf open [and] safe for customers” and members’ businesses “open for play” during the Covid-19 pandemic.
