AGIF VIETNAM CLUB AND TURF MANAGEMENT SEMINAR 2019 AT BRG DA NANG GOLF RESORT
BRG Da Nang Golf Resort achieved a complete success in hosting AGIF Vietnam Club and Turf Management Seminar 2019 on 24 Jul. This is the first time BRG Da Nang took responsibility for this important event.
This AGIF Vietnam Club and Turf Management Seminar, which is organized by Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF), was attended by nearly 100 golf course managers, course supervisors, superintendent, workshop managers, mechanics, etc… from clubs in Vietnam as well as representatives from Cambodia, Myanmar and other countries in Southeast Asia. The purposes of this event are for AGIF’s members to offer education, panel discussion and display/ demonstrate products to delegate during the field day. It was also an occasion for all representatives and golf experts can talk together about topics that influence the trends and direction of the golf course business.
Mr. Eric Lynge – the AGIF’s CEO said at the seminar “We have been running club and turf management events over the past few years in the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City areas. Feedback from the market is that it is time to move the event to Da Nang, given its rising status as a golf and tourism destination in Asia”.
“We have established a partnership to promote the event with the Danang Tourism Bureau and the Vietnam Golf Tourism Association. They understand how useful it is to get both club and turf managers together and they appreciate the link between golf course conditioning and inbound tourism”, he also said.
For this time, two experts who gave a speech at the Turfgrass Seminar were Mr. Matha Kasinurak - Superintendent at Thailand’s Navatanee Golf Course and Mr. Brian Distel - Superintendent at Thai Country Club. At the Club Management mini summit, Mr. Mark Siegel - Owner and Managing Director of Golfasian, one of Asia’s most prominent golf tour companies, and Mr. Jeff Blunden - Managing Director of Golf Business Advisory Services were responsible for the keynote addresses.
