Scotland's St. Andrews to Host Inaugural Golf Festival

St. Andrews, the birthplace (and, we’d say, spiritual home) of golf, will host the world’s first public tribute to the ancient game with the inaugural St. Andrews Golf Festival from March 28-April 1, 2012.

Conceived by Richard Wax, Chairman of Golf Surveys Ltd. And one of Europe's leading golf consultants, the very first Festival of Golf is a global celebration in St. Andrews that aims to draw in visitors to experience the history, traditions and modern innovations that reflect the 600 years that golf has been played in northeast Scotland and around the world.

The Festival is expected to have a wide variety of exhibits and activities that include golf photography, golf literature, films, guided walks, golf humor/entertainment, cutting edge technology, golf course architecture, fashion, trends, personalities and plenty more.

Golf Surveys Ltd. additionally will be hosting the inaugural World Golf Forum in October this year in St. Andrews. Golf industry global experts from a wide spectrum of interests and disciplines will gather to exchange ideas, make informative presentations and suggest themes for the April 2012 St. Andrews Golf Festival. Keynote speakers will include: Jack Peter, CEO of the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Florida; Kyle Phillips, renowned golf course architect; and Darius Oliver, author of the Planet Golf books and the world's leading course rater. Golf Surveys Ltd. is coordinating the Forum’s agenda and participants and information may be found by visiting www.standrewsworldgolfforum.com.
