Best Ever Scottish Golf Show Set for SECC

The 2009 Scottish Golf Show, one of the most anticipated Scottish consumer shows of the year, is now less than two weeks away and organisers are already expecting to break attendance records.

The event is being held at the SECC in Glasgow from March 20-22 and tourism chiefs VisitScotland expect the golfing extravaganza to be worth more than £1.25 million to the local economy.

The three-day showcase will feature some of the biggest names in the golf industry showcasing their latest equipment to Scottish golfers for the first time. Major brands in attendance will be Callaway Golf, TaylorMade, Nike Golf, Mizuno, Yonex, Wilson Staff and more.

Inside Glasgow’s SECC will be a 30 bay indoor driving range, 1000sq/m of practice areas including putting, short game and a special ‘kids only’ junior area. There will also be over 1000 free golf lessons by 14 of the country’s leading PGA professionals plus world famous trick shot artist Dave Edwards will perform his routine over the course of the three days.

Various competitions will be in place for long drive and nearest the pin and visitors will be able to interact with more than 100 exhibitors from the golf industry as the show sold out weeks in advance. Special equipment discounts will also be available from retail giants american golf, the Official Retail Partner of the Scottish Golf Show.

Visitors to the three-day show will have the chance to get up close and personal with one of the most famous trophies in world golf, the Eisenhower Trophy, which will be on location at the SECC following Scotland’s dramatic victory late last year in the World Amateur Team Championship.

Event Organiser Tom Lovering said: “We are very much looking forward to what looks set to be the biggest Scottish Golf Show to date – and it is fitting that we host it at the SECC, Scotland’s largest exhibition facility. This year’s show has grown in size with more retail space, more exhibitors, more driving bays and much more interaction for all levels of golfer.

“The Scottish Golf Show has firmly established itself as the perfect tee-off to the golf season and this year we fully expect to smash attendance records.”
