Jack Nicklaus, arguably history’s greatest golfer and one of today’s most recognized global ambassadors of the game, will attend the 5th annual KPMG Golf Business Forum in person to receive the Golf Business Forum Lifetime Achievement Award.

Nicklaus, a winner of a record 18 professional major championships among his 118 professional victories worldwide, and, for the past 40 years, one of the golf business‘ most industry-shaping and prolific golf course designers, will receive the award in front of an expected audience of more than 300 international industry professionals at The Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt Hotel, near Dublin, 12-14 May, 2008.

“Jack Nicklaus is not only one of the greatest sportsmen and athletes of all time, he is a giant of the international golf business,” said Andrea Sartori, head of KPMG’s Golf Advisory Services Team in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMA). “We are honoured and privileged that Mr. Nicklaus will attend the Golf Business Forum to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award, and lend his monumental presence to our event.”

The Golf Business Forum, which has established itself as the leading golf business event for EMA, will this year focus on ‘Golf Resorts and Golf Communities‘ and will feature a glittering array of expert speakers offering insight on a variety of compelling industry topics.
