Australia's most influential golf business event is back, bigger and better than ever in 2020.

MELBOURNE, 23-24 JUNE 2020.

Golf Business Forum 2020 will see over 400 delegates from all areas of the Australian golf industry converge in Melbourne for our biggest event yet.

What’s more, in an industry first, we’re partnering with the Australian Golf Course Superintendents’ Association’s ‘2020 Asia-Pacific Sports Turf Management Conference’, to create a supercharged Golf Business and Sports Turf Trade Exhibition running concurrently at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.



As the name suggests, Golf Business Forum is all about the business of golf and we welcome all comers from the industry - public golf courses, driving ranges, golf resorts, golf clubs, golf facility management companies, golf tourism operators, government, property development companies, PGA Professionals, industry organisations, golf media and industry business partners.

If you are part of the golf industry, Golf Business Forum 2020 is your destination to meet other golf business professionals, expand your knowledge, be inspired by new ways of thinking and develop the tools for improving your golf business performance.

Golf Australia is delighted to confirm support for Golf Business Forum 2020. Golf Australia is a Foundation Partner of the Golf Business Forum and the event has been instrumental in spreading knowledge and best practice throughout the golf industry, allowing golf operators to network with each other whilst witnessing the latest offerings from service providers.

The 2020 event, combined with the Sports Turf Management Conference, promises even greater opportunities for engagement and networking and we’re proud to again be in support.
— Stephen Pitt, CEO, Golf Australia



Our Exhibition is known as BEING innovative, but in 2020 we’re taking it up a notch.


We’re thrilled that we’ll be teaming up with the Australian Golf Course Superintendents’ Association (AGCSA) to bring you Australia’s largest ever Golf Business and Sports Turf Management conference and exhibition.

The Golf Business and Sports Turf Trade exhibition will occupy a massive 6,000m2 at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, making it the largest and most diverse golf and sports field industry exhibition ever staged in Australia. READ MORE

Club Car has been a partner in both of the Australian Golf Business Forums and we will be taking part in the event in 2020.

The initial Golf Business Forum provided an opportunity for us to showcase our products and services to key players in our golf markets. Additionally, the benefits of the learning experiences for both me and my distribution partners in Australia can’t be overstated. At both events we’ve engaged with industry stakeholders in discussions beneficial to our industry, not just our individual businesses.

The Forum equally provided plenty of time for casual conversations with Presenters and Delegates. These social interactions were as fun as they were valuable. I’m looking forward to the 2020 expanded platform and would recommend the Golf Business Forum to anyone serious about the business of golf in Australia.
— Kevin Gates, Vice President (Oceania), Club Car.



Golf Business Forum connects and inspires all those involved in the diverse range of golf businesses, industry organisations and commercial partners that delight Australia’s 2.1M golf participants.

I’ve been to a few golf managers’ conferences but this is a really different crowd - really eclectic. I’ve really enjoyed meeting a new bunch of people in the industry. It’s been a great experience.
— Scott Wagstaff, General Manager, Carbrook Golf Club


Golf Business Forum 2018 provided two days of great content and ideas, it was also a terrific opportunity to meet new friends and catch up with old ones.

Checkout our highlights reel and access speaker videos to see what all the fuss was about.

I absolutely love it. I feel like if you’re not here at the Golf Business Forum, you don’t know what’s going on in the industry. It’s a great base to open your mind to what’s new, what’s coming up and what we should be doing in the golf industry.
— Michelle Scerri, Burnley Golf Course (City of Yarra)
