Hanoi, Vietnam: Award-winning BRG Legend Hill Golf Resort will play host to the 2017 Vietnam Turfgrass Management Seminar and Field Day.
Organised by the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF), the event will be held on April 27-28.
Officials said they’re hopeful of surpassing last year’s turnout which saw the attendance of more than 70 superintendents, course managers, workshop managers and mechanics from 20 different Vietnamese clubs as well as representatives from venues in Cambodia and Myanmar.
Following an opening-day seminar featuring a variety of high-level speakers from the industry, the second morning is set aside for a Field Day at which companies will showcase their latest golf-related course products and provide demonstrations.
Eric Lynge, the AGIF’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “After visits to Binh Duong, Danang and Ho Chi Minh City, the AGIF is delighted to be heading back to Hanoi this year.
“We are extremely grateful to the management at BRG Legend Hill, sponsors, speakers, delegates and all those involved with the organisation.
“We are pleased also to confirm that the Vietnam Turfgrass Management Seminar is again being supported by both the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America [GCSAA] and the Club Managers Association of America [CMAA] and educational points will be awarded.”
Located 30 kilometres northeast of Hanoi, BRG Legend Hill, which was officially opened in 2015, is easily accessible from Hanoi (30 minutes driving) and the Noi Bai International Airport (10 minutes driving).
Emphasising the AGIF’s aim to support the entire industry, Lynge confirmed that the field day is open to members and non-members of the Federation.
The Vietnam Turfgrass Management Seminar will be the third event in the AGIF series of Turfgrass Management Seminars and Field Days in 2017.
In January, the AGIF supported the Sentosa Agronomy Superintendent Volunteer Programme in Singapore while next month sees the staging of the AGIF Turfgrass Management Exposition in Pattaya, Thailand.
The Philippine Golf Course Management Conference is scheduled to take place at The Orchard Golf and Country Club on May 4-5.
Further events are in the planning for the second half of 2017.
