The wide-reaching popularity of GreenFree, the home of 2-for-1 golf, and similar green fee schemes was confirmed recently, as a leading golf publications' online poll showed overwhelming support amongst UK golfers.
Conducted on the online forum of one of the golf industry’s oldest and most respected golf magazines, the poll received hundreds of respondents, 84% of which were in support of green fee vouchers. The overwhelming support confirms the high regard that golfers hold schemes such as GreenFree, whose vouchers can be redeemed at an impressive portfolio of over 1,000 courses in the UK and Ireland, including Marriott Forest of Arden, The Grove and The Carrick on Loch Lomond.
“We’re thrilled with the result of the poll, which proves that golfers in the UK see the value in the GreenFree product and understand that it has wide-reaching benefits for the game,” commented Dave Lynchehaun, GreenFree Brand Manager. “We’ve worked hard to provide consumers with an unrivalled network of courses to redeem their vouchers at, and are proud to have strong relationships with some of the best-known courses in the UK. Most people note the flexibility of the product for its continued popularity as GreenFree doesn’t commit people to specific tee-times. More and more golfers are taking advantage of the scheme, which is great for the sport, increasing participation and giving golfers the opportunity to play at fantastic venues.”
Continually growing in popularity since its launch in 2001, GreenFree is one of the best value green fee options in terms of variety and affordability. Offering golfers the chance to play new courses, whilst providing increased revenue for golf clubs, GreenFree 2-for-1 vouchers align the best interests of golfers and golf clubs alike.
