Golf Show is major success

The Golf Show held last week in Harrogate donated £5,000 to the PGA Benevolent Fund. Established at the founding of the association the charity continues to assist members in hardship or distress. Now in its fifth year The Golf Show is Europe’s largest golf trade and education event with more than 60 industry-leading brands exhibiting.

In addition, the game’s foremost authority on the short game, Dave Pelz, offered his insight into putting and wedge-play to PGA professionals, headlining The Golf Show 2014 finale – a sell-out Teaching and Coaching Conference, in association with Cleveland Golf and Srixon.

Speaking about his experience at The Golf Show, Dave Pelz said, “It has been really exciting and very positive. This is the best audience I can imagine having, because these are PGA professionals and they really understand the game and we’ve been doing nothing but talking golf since I arrived. The professionals here have been interested to hear what I’ve had to say, but they’ve all got their own experiences and I’m learning from them as well. Sharing experiences with them has been really wonderful.”

John Davis, The Golf Show event manager, said: “Support of The Golf Show has grown across the industry year-by-year and with exhibitors taking more stand space than ever, 2014 has been the biggest ever. As we strive to enhance the show each year and offer greater value to exhibitors and delegates alike, it has been pleasing to hear the positive feedback from both new and familiar faces.”

The Golf Show returns to the Harrogate International Centre on 6 to 8 October 2015. More at
