Dear Industry Colleague
As we enter our 18th year of publishing this magazine, we spend our first article looking back on the way golf has changed over the last 17 years.
Golf is indeed in an interesting phase at present with much changing. The overhaul of the rules of golf has generally been well received by golfers across the country. Keeping the flag in on the greens may seem strange but will definitely speed up play. Only spending three minutes of utter tedium looking for somebody else’s ball is also a welcome relief.
This week sees the start of the year’s tradeshows. BTME is taking place at Harrogate and in Orlando the PGA Merchandise Show is underway. Our own GolfBIC is not far away on March 18, back again at the Forest of Arden. We have introduced a new section within the Golf Features website (https://golffeatures.com/events ) so that golf events and conferences can be easily found. Please let us know if you have a trade event which would be of interest to our readers and we will provide a listing in this section for everyone’s benefit.
For those of you lucky enough to be going to Orlando, please don’t get sunburnt, and wrap up warm if you are in Harrogate. Personally, I am in Portugal frantically trying to qualify for the Seniors European Tour. Foolish – definitely - but lots of fun.
