Congratulations John Solheim

September 2nd, 2015

We are delighted to report that John Solheim is to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2015 HSBC Golf Business Forum in November. The citation talks about his ‘outstanding contribution to the world of golf as well as his achievement, leadership and innovation within the business of golf’.

It should be no surprise, therefore, that the Solheim name appears in each of today’s first three articles.
