12.01am 1st April 2008 - Exhibitions & Conferences

Visitors to this year’s Scottish Golf Show will be able to take advantage of exclusive cut-price deals on the very latest top-of-the-range golf equipment.

The famous american golf shop will once again return to the Royal Highland Centre at Ingliston, near Edinburgh, from 4th – 6th April giving golfers across Scotland access to premium equipment at discount rates.

The market-leading golf retailer will only offer discount prices during the three-day show inside the 420 sq/m american golf shop, almost a third bigger in size than last year.

Deals include half-price irons from the biggest names in golf, plus free equipment when you spend over a certain amount. Premium drivers are being sold in special cut-price deals while a huge range of golf accessories and top-of-the-range apparel will also be on sale at special prices.

Stuart Livingstone, retail director at american golf, said: “We were delighted with the response from Scottish golfers last year and are looking forward to a bigger and better response this time round. Having a bigger shop is going to make a huge difference as we are able to display more stock than ever before.”

Event director Tom Lovering said, “The buzz inside the american golf shop last year was infectious and we are expecting more of the same this year. This year’s shop is a third bigger in size than last year and american golf are offering some sensational deals that will really excite our visitors. If you are looking for some new equipment to start the season, the Scottish Golf Show is the place to be.”

This year’s show promises to be the biggest and best yet, with more exhibitor stands, more interactive features than ever before and even the presence of the Ryder Cup.

New to this year’s show is the short game area, a massive 320sq/m space that will be exclusively operated by leading golf manufacturer Cleveland Golf, with the company’s world famous wedges available for use.

Dave Edwards will also be returning to Ingliston to run through his famous trick shot show while the PGA Scottish Region is offering free PGA coaching to visitors.

Kevin Craggs, one of Scotland’s top coaches, will spend all three days at the show. He will have his own teaching area and will provide expert tuition throughout the day via his own private lessons. He will also be launching his new putting aid.

Tom Lovering concluded, “We are now only days before the 2008 Scottish Golf Show gets underway so it is a very exciting time. Our office has been flooded with calls and the website is getting a massive amount of hits. Also significant is that ticket sales are way ahead compared to this time last year and the run-up to the show is gaining momentum, which is a very good sign indeed.”
