The questions

When we tested this site in late 2013, the response which came back to us from around the world - time and again - was : “At last : thank goodness someone is trying to do something about all this”.

We are not the first to raise concerns about golf losing its way or the first to try and do something about it.  More and more voices warn of a recreational game which is too slow, is less fun than it used to be and is perceived as too expensive by many potential recruits.  All this at a time when the Tournament or Performance game (TOP golf ) is doing so well, with much attention and resource lavished upon it.

But whose job is it - to “do something”?  The starting point is to define  “who does what”. Leaving it for  “others to do”  has been a recipe for drift and decay as we point the finger at everyone but ourselves. Building a critical mass of many thousands of golfers whose voices can be heard may be the only way to reach a tipping point in the campaign for effective change. We should all have a say in this, in the best interests of the game.

Here are the three groups which must clarify "who does what" - and how they do it.  REAL golf wants to confirm the right questions before promoting any answers:

There are many familiar assumptions and assertions which golfers make when discussing these issues. Our starting point is to test them in the REAL golf survey. This is an essential prelude to understanding where recreational golf is today – and where it might go tomorrow.

Once  you have explored the right questions, then it becomes easier to find the right answers to deliver the REAL outcomes we'd like to see.

So, please take the REAL golf survey and give us your opinions!  Your voice counts.
