Golf Trade show a success

The Golf Trade Show, staged at the Harrogate International Centre in Yorkshire, welcomed hundreds of golf industry professionals from across the continent for three days of retailing, education and networking, underlining its position as the essential place for PGA members to learn and do business.

The event – held from October 6-8 – combined exhibitions from the industry’s leading manufacturers and suppliers, a packed programme of educational seminars and fantastic networking opportunities.

More than 50 major golf brands exhibited their latest supplies and services, providing green grass retailers with a first look at the products available in 2016, as well as offering an ideal opportunity to conduct forward purchasing.

Furthering its support of PGA professionals, the Golf Trade Show also 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.

Leslie Hepsworth, president of Srixon Sports in the UK and Ireland, said: “While the event itself goes from strength-to-strength the Golf Trade Show has, once again, provided us with an ideal opportunity to introduce our latest equipment to both new and existing customers, including the Srixon GI 155 and 355 models and our new top-secret 40 compression ball.

“Our commitment to the ongoing development of PGA Professionals and the value we place in the Golf Trade Show is underlined by our ongoing commitment to the Teaching & Coaching Conference, which was headlined this year by Srixon Brand Ambassador Martin Hall.”

The Golf Trade Show returns to the Harrogate International Centre on October 11-13, 2016. To find out more about The Golf Trade Show 2015 visit
