Taking Up Golf
Can be Scary.
It doesn't have to be.
Starting anything new is tough. There’s new information, new situations and new challenges, which combine to create uncertainty and self-doubt.
Golf is no different. The sport presents its own share of hurdles.
Some are more practical, like not knowing how or where to get started. Others are perceptual–reasons, real or imagined, that make golf seem unapproachable. And then there are the emotional obstacles, those having to do with going outside one’s comfort zone to try something new.
WELCOME2GOLF is an NGF led initiative to provide resources and pathways to help more people interested in golf actually become golfers. We help them address these hurdles and arm them with the know-how and resources that will help take the first step into the lifelong and rewarding journey that is golf.
The New Anthem
GOLF BECAUSE is a campaign designed to help interested non-golfing adults get into the game.
Golf because it’s fun. Golf because it’s beautiful. Golf because it gives you an excuse to laugh and share a beer with your friends. GOLF BECAUSE is our rallying cry. It’s our two-word anthem. GOLF BECAUSE lets us tear down each and every barrier of entry to make the wonderful world of golf open to everyone.
Does this sound like somebody you know?
People take up golf for different reasons, and so it’s important that our marketing not be one-size-fits-all.

This is the trend that inspired W2G. Since peaking in 2003 –and despite significant growth in interest –golf participation has been sliding. The aim of W2G is to convert more untapped demand.
