2012 Australian Golf Development Forum

AUSTRALIAN golf industry representatives are meeting at Palm Meadows on Queensland’s Gold Coast this week for the Annual Golf Development Forum.

The forum sees representatives from Golf Australia, the PGA of Australia, the ALPG, Golf Management Australia, all State Association and Junior Foundations, School Sport Australia and the Australian Sports Commission join forces to work through a range of development programs including National Participation Plans.

Golf Australia Golf Development Manager Cameron Wade said the forum was an important meeting as the sport looks to maximise its resources.

“We’ve held this forum for the last two years and it’s been quite successful each time,” Wade said.

“By bringing all of the industry’s major development stakeholders together in one place, we can identify and work through any issues and challenges around our programs and also use our success stories as blue prints for the future. Much of this week will be about the ways that the industry can use its collective strength to grow grassroots golf even more in the future,” Wade added.

The three day conference will feature a number of guest speakers from the golf’s major bodies including 8-time LPGA Tour winner Rachel Hetherington.
