Swiss Golf
18.03.2019

On the basis of intensive negotiations and the many discussions with the clubs, important decisions for the future of Swiss golf could be made at the delegates' meeting of ASG. With the new statutes and the involvement of the public golf organizations ASGI and Migros, a big and important step has been taken.

The amendment to the Articles of Association also includes a new name. The former "Association Suisse de Golf" is now becoming "Swiss Golf". This is consistent with the umbrella organization "Swiss Olympic" and many other associations such as "Swiss Tennis" or "Swiss Volley". Brand new is the name of the golf association but not. Its founding 117 years ago was known as the Swiss Golf Association.

Lower contributions

At the end of 2018, "Swiss Golf" had 89,236 members, which is a good 2,500 fewer than a year before. However, about 3,000 golfers who have used a Migros Golfcard without a membership fee are missing in the official statistics. The delegates also agreed to the Board's proposal to reduce the association's contribution from 85 to 70 francs per active member.

Three new board members

Equally undisputed was the election of three new board members. According to the jointly developed solution proposals, one representative each of the two public golf organizations is to be elected to the board. However, this is not regulated in the statutes, the election takes place "ad personam" instead. Franz Szolansky (ASGI) and Thomas Busin (Migros) were just as clearly elected to the board of directors as Jan Driessens from the Golf Club Lausanne. Driessens has been involved in the golf courses & sustainability committee so far.
