Lucia Huberova, project coordinator, says, “Last year we welcomed 50 people which was a big success considering the size of the Slovak golf market is just 14 courses and it was the first event of its kind in Slovakia.

“This year we believe that we shall attract a similar amount of people to each venue. The Czech market is much more developed than Slovak and we have also invited some people from Russia, Ukraine, Estonia, and Hungary.”
