The diversity varies greatly among the different sports, golfis one of the sports where diversity is almost totally absent.

The first stepof the study consisted of surveys that formed the base of the study. In the second step, interviews cratedknowledge about golf clubs various work to promote integration in society. The results show that almostevery fourth golf club in Sweden was implementing or planning an integration project of some kind.Trough the study, it becomes clear that the barriers that must be torn down to make golf a naturalintegration arena, as sports in general, are numerous.
