Good afternoon Martin,

 

Thank you for your recent request under the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002, asking for:

 

1.       Funding figures allocated to the sport of golf in Scotland
(figures from 2013 to 2018 inclusive)

2.       Funding details in the period 2013 – 2018 inclusive, allocated to
golf through schools and extra curricular activities.

 

Our response is as follows:

 

Please find below our response to Point 1:

 

Financial Year Total Investment Turnover
2017-2018 £770,000 £3,324,316
2016-2017 £1,275,000 £3,748,768
2015-2016 £1,275,000 £4,408,814
2014-2015 £1,031,333 £4,191,006
2013-2014 £1,031,333 £4,413,000

 

As you will note, and with regards to point 2, and as you will note, we
have not provided you with the funding details allocated to golf through
schools. This is because we have not funded any school programmes for golf
sessions. Therefore, in line with s17 (Information Not Held) of the
Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, we cannot provide you with the
specific information you have requested.

 

Instead, we have provided you with the details of various golf clubs that
support junior development for the years 2013 – 2018 inclusive that we
have funded, the information for which you will find in the spreadsheet
attached.

 

To help us, we would be grateful if you could acknowledge receipt of this
response for our records.

 

If you are not satisfied with our response, you are entitled to ask us to
review our decision. You must make this request within 40 working days of
the date of this response, explaining why you think we should carry out a
review, stating the information request to which this review relates, and
the name and address of the applicant for correspondence. Review requests
should be sent to Head of Finance, sportscotland, Doges, Templeton on the
Green, 62 Templeton Street, Glasgow, G40 1DA. Further information on our
Freedom of Information procedures can be found on sportscotland’s website
under the Freedom of Information section at the end of the home page.

If you are still dissatisfied, you have the right to apply to the Scottish
Information Commissioner for a decision. Further details on this process
are available on the Commissioner’s website:
