Club Support Officer

Below is a Press Release from England Golf:-

23rd April 2018

Steve is growing golf in Berks, Bucks and Oxfordshire

Steve Savage has taken on a key role to support golf clubs in three counties to grow the game.

He is a new England Golf Club Support Officer and will be helping clubs in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire (BB&O) to strengthen their business and to attract more players and members.

Steve said: “I’m really excited about the opportunity to work with clubs in the BB&O area. Golf is my passion and, using my knowledge, I can help clubs provide the experience their customers want, whilst strengthening their business model to create sustainable, strong golf clubs for the future.”

Steve has a degree in Sports Management Golf from Bournemouth University and is a keen golfer himself, playing to a handicap of 1. He learnt to play the game at Southampton Golf Club in Hampshire, where he grew up.

Following university, he spent two years in the USA, working in golf operations at country clubs in Florida and Ohio, where he learnt much about customer service and how to manage a successful golf facility.

England Golf’s strategy for 2017-21, Growing the game of golf in England, focusses on the customer and the importance of providing them with the golfing experience they want, whether that’s competitive play, social opportunities or short format golf which fits into busy lifestyles.

It also has the over-arching aim of encouraging more women and girls into golf.  Currently only 15% of club members are women, but research shows that 640,000 women and girls are interested in taking up the sport.

Among the initiatives Steve will be promoting is the Get into Golf campaign, which offers great value coaching opportunities to new and improving players. The campaign has been given a bold, new look for 2018 which is designed to be noticed and inspire people to give golf a go.

Ashley Rump, England Golf Senior Regional Manager, commented: “I am sure Steve will be a tremendous asset to the county and they will support the clubs to increase participation and club membership.”
