EWGA and EGU begin merger talks
4th March2009

Representatives of the English Women's Golf Association and the English Golf Union have met to re-open talks on the possibility of merger between the two organisations.

It was agreed at the meeting held at The Belfry on Friday February 27 to explore the proposal in more detail. A series of steering group sessions is being scheduled over the next few months and working groups made up of staff and officials will be set up to look at particular aspects of the merger including finance, governance and communications issues.

It is anticipated that county representatives from both organisations will be briefed on progress at the end of June.

Sue Whittaker, chairman of the EWGA management board said: “The initial meeting went well and provided an excellent opportunity for the two organisations to exchange views in an informal setting.”

Nigel Evans, chairman of the EGU board, said: “The meeting was positive and allowed both organisations to highlight the numerous areas that need to be considered. I look forward to taking the discussions to the next stage.”

The EGU has about 740,000 members in over 1900 golf clubs, while the EWGA represents around 120,000 women and girl members in more than 1780 golf clubs.
