Doug Poole – CEO of the UK Golf Federations comments – "We are always looking for new formats for GolfBIC and our 2023 events are very exciting ways for our members to meet and discuss business. They are all professional operators or owners of golf facilities and don’t always want to sit in a hall learning about ways to better the golf industry as they are well able to hold the floor themselves. So GB23’s new format opens up new ways to communicate and work together”.
