Ponte Vedra Beach, United States: The National Golf Foundation (NGF) will present the findings of a specially commissioned research project, demonstrating the game’s extensive reach and offering a fresh perspective on global golf development, at this year’s HSBC Golf Business Forum.
To be staged at the Marriott Sawgrass Resort from November 28 to December 1 the event features an action-packed agenda of the game’s most influential voices, leaders, decision-makers and global innovators from all corners of the golf industry.
The NGF is a trusted and pre-eminent provider of golf market research and insights.
Thousands of facilities and businesses from all segments of the industry, including golf’s most prestigious brands, rely on the NGF’s accurate and timely information to support their businesses.
The NGF tracks global golf course development and maintains the definitive database of every golf facility in the world. Golf courses serve as a key indicator of participation and golf-related business activity.
The presentation will reveal insights at a high level and offer an overview of the worldwide golf landscape.
While golf’s largest and most mature markets originated primarily through the colonisation of the British Empire, golf is clearly a global game and business, with courses in 210 countries.
The NGF will showcase to the HSBC Golf Business Forum audience compelling golf-related case studies as well as shining a light on different projects around the world and examining their unique stories and diverse goals.
Attendees will enjoy keynote speakers, take part in thought leadership and networking sessions, and play the famous TPC Sawgrass Stadium course on December 1.
Partnership categories and delegate spaces continue to fill fast ahead of the Forum’s first US staging with Capillary Concrete, Golf Pay, Pacesetter, SMG Insight and Volvik, the latest brands to confirm their participation.
They join the already announced Colt McKenzie McNair, John Deere, KPMG, Jack Nicklaus Design, Syngenta, Troon Golf and Visit Scotland, who are all set to make significant contributions to the agenda.
Endorsing partners the European Tour, LPGA, PGA of America, PGA Tour, R&A, and the USGA, are also engaged with their CEOs enriching the keynote speakers and panel sessions with the likes of the PGA Tour’s Tim Finchem and LPGA’s Mike Whan committed to take part.
