With just under six weeks until this year’s Scottish Golf Show gets underway, the three-day golf bonanza has received a major boost after securing the backing of both of Scottish golf’s main governing bodies.

The Scottish Golf Union (SGU) and the Scottish Region of the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) have both confirmed their support of the annual golf season curtain-raiser.

The backing of both organisations is a major boost for the 2010 Scottish Golf Show as it prepares to take place from 26-28 March at the SECC in Glasgow.

Show organiser Tom Lovering welcomed the support and said: “The Scottish Golf Union and the Scottish Region of the Professional Golfers’ Association do a fantastic job representing the amateur and professional realms of the game in Scotland. Therefore, we are hugely grateful to be offered their support, which I believe further underlines the high regard in which the Scottish Golf Show, now in its fifth year, is held.

“Their backing reinforces the strong belief held by all of us involved with the Scottish Golf Show that this year’s event is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet and I would reiterate my call to all of those interested in attending to book their tickets now via our website,, in order to book their place at the show and take advantage of a superb ticket offer.”

Children welcome at Scottish Golf Show

Children are welcome at the Scottish Golf Show. All under-5s go free and there are reduced tickets available both for five to 15-year-olds and families when you book in advance. There will also be opportunities for kids to try out golf equipment. Jaxx Golf will have four bays reserved solely for the use of young golfers, who can test the company’s latest clubs. On top of that, there will be ‘junior only’ areas at both the Explanar stand and the PGA teaching nets.
