NGF to Present “Golf’s Global Footprint” at 2016 HSBC Golf Business Forum

NGF’s Greg Nathan presents at the 2015 HSBC Golf Business Forum in Shanghai

The 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 the HSBC Golf Business Forum at the Marriott Sawgrass Resort, November 28 – December 1, 2016.

The NGF is the industry’s most trusted and preeminent provider of golf market research and insights. Thousands of facilities and business members from all segments of the industry, including golf’s most prestigious brands, rely on NGF’s accurate and timely information to support their businesses. 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 colonization of the British Empire, golf is clearly a global game and business, with courses in 210 countries.  NGF will showcase to the HSBC Golf Business Forum audience compelling golf-related case studies as well as shine a light on different projects around the world and examine their unique stories and diverse goals.

The two-day 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. Attendees will enjoy keynote speakers, take part in thought leadership and networking sessions, and play the famous TPC Sawgrass Stadium course on December 1st.

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, The 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.

The Allied Partnerships category, established in 2016 to capitalize on the first Forum in America, showcases the golf construction industry with the AGIF, ASGCA, CMAA, GCSAA, GCBAA and the NGCOA members all receiving incentives to attend.
