‘Evolution’ not ‘Revolution’

October 21st, 2014

At the conclusion of today’s Q & A with Paul Hedges, the CEO of Foremost Golf, Paul says, “Golf is a wonderful game with many excellent attributes. It needs a little evolution and not a revolution. It needs to understand the pressures of limited time that people in today’s modern society have and provide courses and clubs that fit their needs.”

Well said, Paul. We are looking forward to discussing this in more detail at the European Golf Business Conference in two weeks. To learn more about the event please visit www.egcoaconference.eu Registration is still open
