Organisers promise tenth anniversary Scottish Golf Show will be the best one yet
The organisers of the 2016 Scottish Golf Show have promised that this year’s event, taking place at the SECC in Glasgow from March 18-20, will be the biggest and best in the show’s ten-year history.
This year marks a decade since the show launched and, in the intervening period, it has catered to the needs of tens of thousands of the most passionate and knowledgeable golfers in the world.
This year, organisers are promising to raise the bar even higher, with a show that will feature more big brands and deliver greater levels of interaction than ever before.
Show visitors will be able to try the latest equipment from the biggest names in golf equipment - including TaylorMade, Callaway, Titleist, Ping, Mizuno, Cobra, Yonex and more - with all of products available to buy in the huge american golf retail shop.
There will also be opportunities to practice your short game, with numerous putting greens and fun challenges located throughout the massive exhibition hall. The ‘Get Rich Pitch’ promises to be one of the most popular of those challenges, with an incredible £10,000 prize up for grabs.
Fancy being amongst the first people in the world to play the new holes on the Ailsa Course at Trump Turnberry? The remodelled layout doesn’t re-open for a few months yet but, thanks to a state-of-the-art simulator on the Trump Turnberry stand, you will be able to sample the stunning new par-3 ninth, as well as the exceptional new tenth and 11th holes, as though you were actually there.
Top PGA professionals will be on-hand to deliver free lessons throughout the event - these tend to be extremely popular, so book your slot early on the day to avoid disappointment - whilst one of Scotland’s leading coaches, Kevin Craggs, will deliver unmissable short game clinics on all three days. Kevin will share the Show Theatre with the fantastic Dean Davis, who will be bringing his jaw-dropping trick-shot show back to the show once again this year with some all-new tricks guaranteed.
Young golfers also have their dedicated area within the show courtesy of the Golphin Kids’ Zone, whilst there will also be over 100 exhibition stands to browse, with all areas of the game - tourism, clothing, accessories and more - taken care of.
“It hardly seems possible that ten years have passed since the Scottish Golf Show first launched,” revealed show organiser Tom Lovering. “We pride ourselves on consistently raising the bar and providing a quality experience for our customers. This year, we are confident we will deliver not just the biggest show to date but the best one, too.”
