Full delegates will enjoy two nights of 5-star luxury at future Ryder Cup venue Celtic Manor: the Conference will include presentations on the subject of preparations for Ryder Cup 2010 – and how delegates can learn from the work in progress.
“We have once again been delighted with the response” said GCA chairman, Mike Shields. “Our programme is all-new for this second year, with twenty speakers and several superb panels of experts lined up to talk about a wide range of subjects – all focussing on how to make profit from golf.”
Ex-captain of the PGA John Stirling is lined up to make the after-dinner speech at the gala dinner on the Monday night. Stirling is well known as one of the industry’s most extraordinary and entertaining after-dinner speakers.
