2015 Golf Season starts on an Optimistic Note

January 27th, 2015

Last week’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando has been hailed as a great success and, after a winter of discontent in many quarters, has given the golf business a positive outlook to start the year. It was a similar story, albeit on a smaller scale, at BTME in Harrogate as well. We have received enough stories about new products launched at both of these shows to last well into next month.

Watch this space for more good news as we prepare for the Golf Industry Show in San Antonio – ‘Where Big Things Happen!’
