The Organisation of Golf Range Owners was founded in 2002 to enhance communication within the golf range industry and deliver added value to members through partnerships developed with major suppliers of goods and services. This month sees the organisation host its 5th annual Range Conference and Exhibition at the Ramada Jarvis Maidstone on 29th March.

Following last year’s record attendance this year’s Conference and Exhibition promises to be another exceptional gathering of the leading figures in the golf range industry.

Further teaching styles and options will be presented with contributions from Roger Mace – Teach to Sell; Rob Spurrier – Orbis Coaching; Neil Burke – Horne Park; Dave Gosling – YMG; and Colin Jenkins – Learn to Play in May
