The U.K. has been trying to keep its armed services from having to purchase equipment from the U and it seems to be succeeding.
According to the latest figures, the British Armed Forces is spending an estimated £2.5 billion on golf equipment for the 2016-2017 fiscal year.
The Defense Ministry is spending around £8,500 per person per year on the purchase of equipment for its soldiers, according to figures provided to The Telegraph by the Defense Research and Development Organization.
That is a huge amount for the British armed forces and is equivalent to around 4% of its GDP, according the Daily Telegraph.
The military is already struggling with shortages of golf clubs, clubs for the golf courses and golf balls.
In response to the increasing demand, the Ministry of Defense announced that the government will be introducing a Golf Equipment Fund in the spring of 2019, which will be able to buy the equipment it needs to train the military.
The fund will have an annual budget of up to £2 billion, which is expected to cover the purchase, training, maintenance and other costs of the golf equipment.
The funding will be in addition to the existing £1 billion fund that the Ministry has already allocated for this purpose.
The Ministry said that the funds will be allocated to the Department for Transport, Infrastructure, and Communications, which includes the Transport and Tourism ministries.
The funding will also cover the procurement of new golf clubs.
The British government has also been working to find ways to increase its use of golf equipment in order to boost its army’s combat effectiveness and readiness.
The government recently unveiled a plan to buy 200,000 golf clubs over the next five years, according The Guardian.
