Industry joins forces at Development Conference

Junior golf is one of the areas for discussion at this week's conference.

Representatives from across Australian golf arrive at Palm Meadows on Queensland's Gold Coast today for the opening day of 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.

I wonder how many representatives from public golf course management were invited? No use developing particpation plans if the venue providers aren't included in discussions at the development stage
