Munich Week will be PGAE ‘GolFest’

1.00am 25th April 2003 - Exhibitions & Conferences

The PGAE’s week-long activities scheduled for October, unofficially labelled ‘The PGAE Munich GolFest’, are promising to be as spectacular a success as the ‘Working Together’ Annual Congress at Atalaya Park Hotel, Costa del Sol last December.

Applications to attend the 6th PGAE Teaching and Coaching Conference are flowing in as golf professionals around Europe to hasten to ensure that they will not miss out.

The TCC, on October 2-4 will be followed immediately by Golf Europe 2003, (October 5-7), now in its 11th year and growing ever stronger.

“I’m totally convinced that our activities in Munich in October will be up there with last December’s ground-breaking ‘Working Together’ Annual Congress in terms of an important milestone for the Association,” said Lawrence Thornton. “Since the Teaching and Coaching Conference and our No.1 European Trade Show coincide with the famous Munich OktoberFest it could be said that the PGA of Europe is taking the opportunity to stage its own Munich GolFest.”

The events will be staged in neighbouring facilities at the magnificent complex which houses both the International Congress Centre for the TCC and the New Trade Fair Centre for the Golf Show, facilities that are unrivalled anywhere in Europe for such a high-profile double act.

The PGA of Germany are formulating an exciting schedule of speakers for the TCC including top Americans Richard Coop, Dave Pelz, Hank Haney and Dr Ralph Mann along with the one-and-only Peter Alliss, an icon on both sides of the Atlantic.

Up to 800 golf pros are expected to attend the TCC while Golf Europe, which prospered last October despite its clash with the Ryder Cup Matches, is confidently expected to soar to new heights in terms of both exhibitors and visitors.
