The R&A - Working for Golf

Golf Course 2030 - Call for Proposals

The R&A is launching a Call for Proposals for the period 2019-2022 to attract applications for projects which address the recommendations for action in the Golf Course 2030 Great Britain & Ireland Action Plans.  The launch date is 3 June 2019 and anyone wishing to submit a proposal is required to do so by 30 August.

Action Plans, setting out a clear pathway to provide solutions for the priority issues, have been published here.

Each Action Plan proposes activities/projects and The R&A is putting out an invitation to organisations who believe they are capable of completing one or more of these to submit a proposal.

The R&A will consider making a funding contribution up to the value of £30,000 for projects (£30,000 per annum for those of more than a year’s duration), but there is a strong preference for projects that are funded jointly by The R&A and other sources, such as universities, research institutes, research councils, companies, etc.  Applicants will be expected to provide other sources of funding or in-kind services which reduce the financial cost of the project.

Please see the Call for Proposals document for further details.  This contains information on the activities/projects and is available here.

For those wishing to submit a proposal, a Guide for Applicants is available here.

Submissions must include a completed Application Form and a separate Project Description.  An Application Form is available here.
