The newly-formed Federation for Norwegian Golf Courses has been accepted as a member chapter of the European Golf Course Owners Association (EGCOA).

EGCOA president Marcel Welling said: “We are very happy with the initiative taken by the Norwegian golf course owners to start a national association. It will strengthen their business and cooperation. For the EGCOA it is important to have another member that completes the cooperation of owners in Scandinavia.” Besides Norway, there are also EGCOA member chapters in Sweden, Finland and Denmark which means all owners in Scandinavia are now united.

Scilla Treschow Hokholt of FNG added: “We believe in the importance of an owners association in our country. With the many courses we have in our growing market we see a big potential for our association. We choose to be member of the EGCOA to be able to communicate with members in other countries, to learn from them and share our experiences with them. We believe strongly in cooperation.“

Founder member clubs of FNG include Haga Golfpark, Hauger Golfbane, Mørk Golf, Borre Golfbane, Larvik Golfbane, Norsjø Golfpark, Oustøen Country Club, Oslo Golfklubb, Losby Golfpark and Evje Golfpark.
