Golf LIVE Driving Range: A Big Hit

7.45am 14th January 2011 - Exhibitions & Conferences

Leading equipment manufacturers from around the World are queuing up to take part in Golf LIVE, the unique and truly engaging golf event which moves to a new venue at the London Golf Club in Kent for 2011.

Heading the list of global golf brands making their first appearance at Golf LIVE will be Titleist, who will be inviting visitors to take part in their ball fitting process within an outdoor customised area. Meanwhile, on the Driving Range, new exhibitors Cobra, Wilson, John Letters and MD Golf will join existing brands Callaway, Nike, Yonex, Cleveland and Srixon.  All the companies will be offering extensive trial opportunities to the 15,000 committed golf enthusiasts that will attend over the three days from May 20th – 22nd.

Also new for 2011 will be a dedicated Putting Area that will feature Odyssey, Rife, Nike, K-mat, Dreamliner and Dave Hicks. The fabulous putting green at the London Golf Club will provide the perfect surface for trying out all the latest putters manufacturers have to offer.

On the accessory side, Bushnell laser rangefinders will be supporting the nearest the pin competition, whilst the official Mid-Iron and Approach Theatre will be sponsored by Garmin, the manufacturers of GPS measuring devices.

Commenting on Golf LIVE’s success at attracting new exhibitors and sponsors, Event Director James Goode said: “The line up of top brands at Golf LIVE is a tremendous endorsement of everything we are trying to achieve. We aim to give visitors the ultimate golf experience and to do that we need the input and interaction of top global golf companies. The combination of leading Tour players and their equipment sponsors is the dream ticket for us as an event organiser.”

“There is still plenty of time for other companies to come on board to exhibit at the show and the beauty of the London Golf Club is that its size and lay-out gives us a lot more flexibility in accommodating specific requirements.   The extraordinary news is that despite doubling the size of the driving range from 16 to 35 bays (2010 to 2011) it has already sold out and in less than half the time.  There are stands still available but I would recommend contacting the team today to avoid disappointment as we have sold over 80% of the retail space already.” Goode added.

The Driving Range at the London Golf Club will be positioned in front of the Retail Shop and the main Exhibition Hub, allowing visitors every opportunity to try and buy all the latest equipment on the market.
