The Scottish Golf Show saw huge crowds gather at Royal Highland Centre, near Edinburgh, to signify the start of the 2012 golf season. The immensely popular exhibition excelled all previous records from its seven-year history, with a staggering 17,714 keen golfers attending the three-day event. Highlights of the event included free lessons with PGA Professionals, the opportunity to have a photograph taken with four of golf’s most iconic trophies; the Ryder Cup, Claret Jug, Senior British Open trophy and the Walker Cup, a super sized American Golf shop and the much loved Tiger Chip Challenge.
Show organiser,Tom Lovering, was delighted with the attendance; “This has been an outstanding year for the Scottish Golf Show, the calibre of our exhibitors speaks volumes for how highly regarded the show is and the attendance has been phenomenal. We make ‘interaction’ a key focus at the show and this year we really pushed the boundaries with over 375sqm of putting greens, over 500m of short game zones, 57 areas for golfers to practice their shots and, of course, the iconic Tiger Chip Challenge.”
And it wasn’t just the show itself that experienced great success; exhibitors experienced record sales over the weekend with some even selling out of products.
American Golf Manager Elliot Fleming was delighted with the show; “In my mind, the Scottish Golf Show signifies the start of the golfing season and it’s a highlight of our year. We have experienced record sales today. Amazing – we’re already looking forward to next year.”
