We’ve reached the end of the 2017 season and we hope you’ve enjoyed your golf wherever you’ve played. Competitive golf in Scotland remains buoyant with more than 1.3m rounds played across the country between April and October.
Using the numbers gathered from our Centralised Database of Handicaps*, we wanted to share some of the most interesting stats from the year, to acknowledge the achievements of club golfers and help you gauge your game compared to the rest of the golfing population!
