The European Golf Course Owners Association (EGCOA) provides services to support golf course owners in their aims, represent their interests and improve the golf business on a European level. The EGCOA supports more than 950 golf course owners by spreading and sharing knowledge.
Established in 2004, the EGCOA is headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Owners and operators of golf courses throughout Europe, from owners of nine-hole facilities to multiple course owning companies, are united in the EGCOA to protect their interests. With the growing role of the European Union and the shift of decisionmaking from a national to a European level, the role of the EGCOA as Europe’s leading authority on the business of golf course ownership is continually increasing.
The annual European Golf Business Conference, organised by the EGCOA, is the place where golf course owners, golf managers, directors of golf, suppliers, representatives of national and European golf bodies, golf course architects and industry partners gather. The aim of the conference is to bring the European golf business together in order to improve the operation of golf courses, to share ideas, exchange information about matters of mutual concern and to network.
