Focus on #MoreThanGolf

June 14th, 2017

Yesterday’s England Golf ‘innovation conference’ was attended by 140 people from a wide cross section of the golf industry including clubs, counties, multi-course operators, PGA, Ladies European Tour, GCMA and media.

As our report shows this audience was invited to participate through a ‘Comments Wall’. The good news today is that a #MoreThanGolf LinkedIn group has started to create a network of golf innovators and entrepreneurs and it is open to all. Just search LinkedIn for #MoreThanGolf Innvation Group and continue/join the conversation!

I suggest you do that straight after you have read through today’s GBN Newsletter!
