The largest number of attendees in three years of the ING Spring Conference enjoyed what most deemed a very successful 20th anniversary celebration of the International Network of Golf last week at Pinehurst Resort.

Over 170 from all walks of the golf industry and media participated in this annual gathering, conducted by the non-profit ING.

One of the highlights was the opening panel discussion including Sean Toulon, executive vice president, product and brand creation for TaylorMade-adidas Golf, Roger Pride, director of marketing of Visit Wales & the Welsh Assembly Government, Jim Dunlap, editor/reporter for Pellucid and Kyle Phillips of Kyle Phillips Golf Course Design.

These four leaders of the golf industry provided ING members with candid opinions about where the industry stands now and where it is headed over the next five years. While the industry has been at the mercy of the troubled economy, the panel felt, that like the economy, there is a cause for guarded optimism provided the correct path is taken.

It was also announced that the 2011 ING Spring Conference will take place May 22-26 at Innisbrook Resort in the St. Petersburg/Clearwater, FL region.
