I see a number of golf clubs have got sports capital grants. Of course a plethora of other sports including soccer, GAA, rugby etc have got grant's too but what are peoples views on allocations for golf clubs? Amongst general public golf can be seen as an elitist game which attracts a certain demographic with plenty of disposable income and may wonder is it the best opportunity cost. A bit like Shane Ross allocating money to a BlackRock private school for Hockey pitches but not quite on that same level.

Have you ever looked at the application process? I think you should start there to see the criteria required to get grants,

I don't think private clubs should be entitled to public monies which would be better served amongst local communities. Last year, Delgany received €65,000 to improve their practice area considering an inner city boxing club received c.€500. Albeit, there is a certain minister who is believed to have affiliations with the club but that could just be hearsay
