General information

In July 2016  DGB became a formal  non profit organisation by notary registration.

This is our brochure (spring 2016)

The project was supported by the Netherlands Golf Federation until 2012.

The Sports Turf and Research Institute (STRI) conducted a yearly analysis of the collected data.

Our activities are supported by Barenbrug (great in grass).

When reading this has inspired you to participate and you would like to join as a new member of DGB please contact me (see joining DGB)
