The Sports Foundation had a record breaking year, raising just under $45 million for Aussie sport with golf making up almost $5 million of this sum.
In comparison to last financial year donations to golf have fallen by 35% but it’s still in the same position of 3rd on the highest grossing sports ladder.
Golf’s fundraising represents $6.24 per participant, Aussie Rules is leading the way at $31.42pp and $8.89 rugby union.
One of the most exciting statistics, however, shows that the biggest winner across the face of fundraising was grassroots sports in general.
Previously it was the professional sporting organisations and clubs that received the most donations, however this year 61% of all donations were made to grassroots sports organisations!
