Fairway 2002, the 8th Golf Course Congress with Exhibition, aims to present the entire spectrum of current know-how in theory and practice from 28th February (Congress starts 27th February) to 1st March 2002 in the exhibition halls and conference rooms at the M,O,C, in Munich-Freimann. Leaders in golf course design, construction, care, management and equipment for driving ranges, club houses and associated buildings will be showing the wide range of products and services needed by golf facilities to ensure their successful and profitable management.
Key trade associations will be taking stands at Fairway. These include the Deutsche Golf Verband, the Greenkeeper-Verband Deutschland, the Golf Management Verband Deutschland, the European Institute of Golf Course Architects, the Bundesverband Golfanlagen, the Deutsche Rasengesellschaft, the PGA of Europe and PGA of Germany. The Fairway bookshop will be making its contribution to this range of information, with many books and trade publications, some of which are difficult to obtain in Europe.
Golf is becoming more and more popular in Europe, particularly on the continent. But, say the organisers of Fairway 2002, this rise is being hampered by the lack of large 18-hole golf courses and of general teaching and practice facilities with opportunities for beginners. The trend is towards a greater diversity of facilities, with smaller, more accessible, local courses.
Fairway 2002 is aimed at all those who are involved with golf courses in a business sense. These include investors, golf course architects, operators, greenkeepers, managers and also landowners, local authorities, tourist organisations and financial institutions.
