No Time To Lose

August 11th, 2017

A special early bird rate is available for the Golf Club Managers Association Conference which will take place at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, near London, from Sunday 12 to Tuesday 14 November 2017 but this offer runs out on 14 August.

I’m sorry to be giving GBN readers so little advance notice of this but I only heard about it myself late yesterday afternoon. However, since the offer includes the option to arrive on the Sunday and enjoy exhilarating driving experiences, explore Mercedes-Benz World, visit Brooklands museum, and take part in a F1 simulator fastest lap competition, why would anyone need much time to think it over. See you there!
