Golf LIVE, the ultimate live golf event, returns in 2011 after the huge success of the inaugural event in 2010. Ryder Cup winning Captain Colin Montgomerie will once again be headlining the event giving guests an ‘inside the ropes’ experience with one of the legends of European golf.
Golf Live gives guests the chance to get ‘up close and personal’ with some of the stars of the game. Last year’s world class line up at the event also included Paul Casey, Ian Poulter, Retief Goosen and David Leadbetter.
Other famous faces that took part included Sky Sports golf presenter Di Stewart, Peter Alliss, Iain Carter and Andrew Cotter. This year’s lineup promises to be just as exciting with more big names to be announced shortly.
Colin Montgomerie comments on Golf Live: “I am already getting excited about 2011 Golf Live and am constantly thinking of ways we can build on and improve upon the enormous success of last year’s inaugural event. I feel very proud to be an ambassador for this innovative golf show and extremely grateful to the partners and supporters whose vision and belief in Golf Live has allowed us to develop this unique event.”
Over the course of three action packed days, attendees at the event will be witness to a feast of golf including a range of master classes from the pro’s giving expert tips on how to improve all aspects of the game, from tee to green and a three hole pro celebrity challenge. There will also be the chance to see trick shot star Jeremy Dale performing some of his most outrageous shots and a host of golf exhibitors offering one-off deals to Golf Live attendees.
Next year’s must-attend golf event will take place at the stunning London Golf Club, near Brands Hatch, in Kent between 20th and 22nd May 2011. The event gives visitors exclusive access to the highly acclaimed Jack Nicklaus-designed Heritage Course, the driving range, putting green and other facilities. The move to the London Club allows the event to grow and give even more opportunities for visitors to interact with the players and brands.
Chris Hughes, Chief Executive of Brand Events, comments on Golf LIVE: “Golf LIVE is an event unlike any other and after the success of last year we are delighted about the prospects for this year. Golf LIVE is the only event that really breaks down the barriers between players and the audience allowing them to fully interact with each other. The London Golf Club will be a wonderful host and the lineup promises to be truly world class.”
Tickets to next year’s event start from £45 and are available from the Golf Live website at www.golfliveevent.com
