SCOTTISH GOLF UNION SEMINAR & AGM - Individual clubs invited to attend

For the first time, the SGU and its 16 Area Associations wish to invite affiliated clubs to attend the annual SGU conference, being staged on the weekend of 25 – 26 January 2014 at the Stirling Management Centre on the University of Stirling campus.

(SGU press release)

The conference event, incorporating the SGU AGM, provides an excellent networking opportunity for clubs and the platform to work and learn together as we consider some of the key issues facing Scottish golf.

The opening day, Saturday 25 January, runs from 10.30am to 5.30pm and will feature interactive sessions and case studies exploring best practice in golf clubs, as well as a key note speech from Troed Troedson, a renowned expert on understanding consumer behaviour, who will provide an invaluable insight to clubs on this subject.

This will be followed in the evening by a Conference Dinner, commencing at 7.00pm, giving attendees the opportunity to meet socially, continue the discussions from the day while enjoying excellent food in the company of our after-dinner speaker.

The Sunday session will take place between 9.30am and 1.00pm, with the focus on working better together, while the SGU will report on its activities for the year. This session will conclude with the SGU AGM before lunch is served at 1.00pm.

Your club is invited to send up to two delegates to attend the full conference, or any of the individual sessions as detailed below together with the prices. Should demand exceed availability, places will be allocated to clubs on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Saturday 25 January – Day £27.00 per person
  • Saturday 25 January – Dinner £22.00 per person
  • Sunday 26 January – Day £22.00 per person
