His 19 years of experience in golf course management is with two of the biggest international golf management companies, American Golf Corporation and ClubCorp, for various levels of facilities from 2-star to 5-star operations in the USA and Australia.

“Everyone is invited to get involved and use the website, no matter what your role is in the industry, or even if you just have an interest in golf,” said Mr Orloff.

“The golf industry in this region is pretty fragmented and there is not a lot of cross-pollination of ideas between the different operational sectors. invites visitors to share ideas and discuss current issues and challenges being faced throughout the industry. It is only through free-flowing discussion and sharing of ideas that the industry will become stronger.”
