BGIA Chair Martin Wild addressed guests at The Open Lunch at St Andrews on 13 July. In his speech he reported that the BGIA now has the largest and most diverse membership it has had in many years, with members parking their self-interest at the door in order to focus on growing the game, particularly for children and young people. He expressed his wish that every child should get the chance to play the game and reported that during the pandemic a whole new younger generation had been introduced to golf. The BGIA are united in their efforts to build on this and continue to work together to introduce golf to more and more young people.
