This research was commissioned by the EGU and R&A in 2010. The aims of the research project were threefold:

1) To review the academic literature on barriers to participation in sport, especially golf;
2) To survey clubs, members and nomadic golfers to describe their perceptions of GolfMark and the issues it intends to address;
3) To gather in-depth data from a range of golf clubs to help understand how different club cultures may lead to the exclusion of underrepresented demographic groups.
