Get Your Handicap Month

Website click here 


In the Netherlands there are a lot of golfers who don't play that much. Getting your golf license could get you to play more golf. The people also have to register themselves as a member at a golf club, which creates loyalty. The transfer from a handicap registration to a membership of a golf club will be more easy.

Background Details

In the Netherlands we grow with golfers, who do not play golf. The target is to generate more rounds of golf. We will do this by first doing a pilot on three golf courses in the Netherlands, organised by the NVG. Next year the project will be national.


There are 124 registrations for a new handicap registration in one month, on about 2000 played rounds of golf (by greenfee players without  a handicap)
