About NGF and The Q
The National Golf Foundation is a community of individuals and golf businesses committed to being the most well-informed advocates for the growth of the industry.
With the world’s largest research team dedicated to golf, NGF provides members with the most accurate and objective insights on the game. We help golf businesses better understand their market and grow their businesses.
The NGF is the only association for everyone in golf, and we advocate for growth by educating and connecting our members.
"The Q" is the NGF's communications website, providing questions, answers and insights about the business of golf.
The mission of our digital golf business journal is to provide information and inspiration – as only NGF can -- while motivating change, thought and innovation across the diverse landscape of the golf industry.
The Q extends the 80-year mission of the NGF: fostering the growth and vitality of the game while supporting the people, companies, facilities and associations that make a living in golf.
Featuring research-driven NGF content, The Q aims to provide unique ideas and insights conveyed by some of the game’s best writers.
Serving more than 90,000 golf business professionals and 300,000 golfers interested in the business side of the sport, The Q is a fact-based journal focused on the present state of the industry as well as its future growth.
While much of what NGF does is member-based and oriented, the wealth of content from The Q is available free of charge.
Distributed mid-month every month, the expert-created content serves to not only to inform but also inspire readers to turn ideas into reality and demonstrate how successful concepts can be replicated. It’s about creating a foundation for others to build upon.
