Golf brand says it will cut 6,000 jobs in South Africa
Golf Brand has announced it will reduce its workforce in South African golf clubs, citing poor market conditions.
The company said it would make cuts of 6,300 employees, including about 600 in the country’s three main areas of business: marketing, merchandising and media, as well as its international team.
In the past year, the company has faced stiff competition from new players like PGA Tour player Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods, who both started playing in South Africans clubs in 2016.
It said the company would also look at the feasibility of outsourcing certain aspects of the business.
