New Zealand Golf has today released its new strategic plan for the 2020 to 2025 period.

Entitled ‘Enriching Lives Through Golf’, the new strategy sets a compelling vision for the future of the sport and the role it can play across the communities of New Zealand.

New Zealand Golf believes golf is distinctive from other sports. It is a game that has a unique tradition and history that encompasses a values system that is unrivalled. It is the only sport that can be played competitively and equitably across all facilities in all conditions by participants of all ages and skill levels.

Most importantly, golf is a game that delivers positive and enriching outcomes for participants through inspired performances, increased physical activity, greater social connectedness and enhanced health and wellbeing. Positive benefits are not confined to golf participants; the game of golf delivers an increasingly significant number of social, environmental and economic benefits to our country.

New Zealand Golf Chief Executive Dean Murphy believes golf is ideally placed for future prosperity.

“We believe the game of golf provides unique, inclusive and lifelong enrichment for its participants. These unique attributes provide us the platform from which to sustain prolonged growth and prosperity for the sport.

“Golf is not immune to the challenges facing sport so it’s crucial we embrace the future and plan effectively to meet the changing needs of participants. This means not only sustaining what we currently have in terms of grass roots participation and performance success but delivering a sport that attracts a new generation of players who develop a lifelong love of the game.”
