Greetings from San Diego, home of the Golf Industry Show

February 5th, 2016

Good morning from San Diego where GBN.com has relocated in order to cover ‘Everything Under the Sun’ at next week’s Golf Industry Show. We shall, of course, continue to bring you our usual coverage of golf business news around the world. The eight-hour time difference will be just a minor inconvenience for us but, dear reader, hopefully not for you!
