 “In order to see real progress in the golf industry, industry stakeholders need to walk down many different paths together. In some cases, that means inviting people to where you are, and in other cases it means meeting people where they are , said Jay Karen, Chief Executive Officer of NGCOA . “
What Jim and his team are putting together gives us the opportunity to share the ins-and-outs of owning and operating golf courses to a community that highly values golf, but is woefully underrepresented in our ranks . We hope this first step together will start opening pathways to golf course ownership for many people.”
