Where to next for golf businesses?
According to Golf Australia, the overwhelming majority of Australia’s 1.2 million estimated golfers are public golfers who are not tied to a member-based club. Given the sheer number of public golfers, and the diverse forms of golf participation, the public golfer is one of key drivers for the future of Australian golf.
In response, industry leaders have developed the inaugural Golf Business Forum 2016 – Australia’s largest ever gathering of golf facility owners, operators, industry leaders and business partners, to be held in Melbourne in July 2016.
With gathering support from the industry, the Golf Business Forum looks set to be an event that should not be missed. With initial keynote speakers from home and abroad already announced, now is the time to start planning for your participation in July.

Where and how do Australia's
800,000 public golfers play their golf?
As the one of the most popular participation sports in the country, the success of golf is tied to the facilities that service the market. If you operate or own one of these facilities or are a supplier to them, you'll understand that consistently positive bottom line results can be elusive at times.
To date, operators and owners have lacked real opportunities to share success stories, discuss solutions to challenges we all face and meet other people in the industry.
The Golf Business Forum will bring the industry together for the first time.
At the Golf Business Forum, leading industry participants and content-specialists from inside and outside the golf industry will discuss the issues facing today’s golf business, including:
- Sport and golf-specific participation trends and initiatives
- Customer engagement and building loyalty
- Marketing, pricing and managing your presence online
- Retail best practice and competing with the off-course and online retailers
- The future of the game and how we can help grow golf in all its forms
