With our name in lights and full of brilliant moments on and off the course can we honestly say we leave 2014 with a golfing legacy?
Ryder Cup was a huge chance for Scotland to showcase the country’s offerings to golfers and non golfers around the world. The third largest sporting event attracting a daily audience of 500 million, the rolling Perthshire mountains and misty sunrises were a tourism dream.
Similar to the First Tee Program in the United States, Club Golf funded through the Scottish Golf Union and backed by the Scottish Government supports the growth of golf to children, working closely with golf clubs and schools throughout the country. They’ve released their highlights of 2014 and an example of what might be bubbling away across Scotland’s golf clubs.
It may be too early to say a Ryder Cup legacy has been created but the hard work of Club Golf volunteers continues. The glitz and glamour of Ryder Cup moves on but the effort to preserve Scottish golf for young and old, rich or poor rolls on.
