World Golf Expo 2021 – WGE Re-Scheduled!

With the resurgence of COVID-19 in various parts of the world, the Inaugural World Golf Expo (WGE) has been re-scheduled.

The major international knowledge and business summit on golf is confirmed to be staged at Mission Hills Resort in Haikou, Hainan on November 4 – 6, 2021.

“We tried to delay making the announcement regarding the re-scheduling of the World Golf Expo in the hope that conditions would improve resulting in us being able to stage the event as scheduled,” said Tenniel Chu, Chairman of the WGE Organising Committee and Vice Chairman of the Mission Hills Group.

“Sadly, while conditions have improved somewhat in some countries, the general situation is seen as not being conducive to bringing a large group of people from various parts of the world to attend a business conference,” he added.

The Executive Producer of WGE, Mike Sebastian, CEO of the Asia Pacific Golf Group said, “We are looking ahead, and the re-scheduling of the World Golf Expo provides us with a special opportunity to re-think the event into an even larger show – bigger and better than what was originally conceived.”

“I can personally assure everyone that the re-scheduled and re-imagined World Golf Expo will be well worth the wait. Rest assured that we will be staging some of the best industry experts – people who will be sharing and reflecting the way forward for the industry,” declared Sebastian.

With all the monumental changes that businesses have been subjected to because of the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic, the need to inspire and motivate people to strive on in a changed business landscape has never been greater.

The golf club industry is also part of the changed business landscape. The World Golf Expo scoured the world to seek out a master motivator to get the industry and its people back on track and firing on all cylinders.

He pioneered tourism flights to the South Pole, was a professional adventure guide for 18 years in British Columbia, Antarctica and the Yukon, white-water kayaking competitor, mountain climber, and endurance athlete and has even golfed at the North Pole! And a university professor!

“We are truly fortunate to be able to get Hugh on board – he is simply an incredible man, just the sort of person to help the industry lift its spirit and bounce back with real gusto,” said Mike Sebastian, CEO of the Asia Pacific Golf Group, the joint producer of the WGE with the giant Mission Hills Group of China.

World Golf Expo 2021 – Growth – Golf’s Continuing Mission!

While golf has experienced a general slowdown in the Western Hemisphere, the same does not hold true for the Asia Pacific.

With close to 60% of the global population concentred in the Asia Pacific and with some of the fastest growing economies in the world, all the essential ingredients for the growth of golf in the region are in place and ready for growth.

One man who believes in golf’s positive future trends in the Asia Pacific is the enterprising and visionary T.K. Pen, founder and chairman of Orient Golf.  “I want golf to be a white-collar sport,” he says, accessible to those making 5,000 yuan (about US$730) a month.” To help realise this vision, Pen has set up more than 15 golf courses to promote affordable golf and this pursuit continues under his leadership.

His commitment to grow golf does not stop there – he is the founder and chairman of the fast-growing China LPGA which is a powerhouse dedicated to developing topflight professional talent to compete on the world stage. To this end, Pen is well on his way into achieving his goal of developing women’s golf in China and the rest of Asia.

Pen is also a strong supporter of junior golf and each year he lends his support to various tournaments for juniors to help them develop and grow their interest in the game.

There is no denying that Pen is a major driver of the growth of golf in the Asia Pacific. This incredible man will be speaking at the World Golf Summit slated to be held in Haikou, Hainan in March and he is not an act to be missed.

World Golf Expo 2021 – Knocking Back Golf Course Maintenance Cost!

As the Asian golf industry dives headlong into the Millennium’s new decade, one pressing problem threatens to linger as the industry looks for new ways to keep costs in check while it charts a course for growth.

The perennial challenge faced by the industry in general relates to the cost of maintenance of a golf course. Granted, a golf course is a living organism with acres of hybrid turf that needs to be mowed, watered, fertilised, and taken care off. This is an on-going expenditure and one that often places a big burden on golf course owners and operators.

In tough times, the maintenance of a golf course takes the first whack in any cost cutting drive. Although it is one of the easiest operational aspects of a golf course to be squeezed from a cost perspective, unfortunately, this action affects the state of a golf course. It does not take rocket science to figure out what happens when compromises are made to agronomical practices – a course simply goes belly-up and golfers complain, resulting in reduced play, minimised revenues and everything goes into a one-way slide downwards!

There must be a way to arrest this challenge in a business environment where budgets need to be kept trim and affordable. Just making claims that new varieties of turf can help to minimise maintenance cost is not enough. The need is for a sustainable maintenance practice that can keep maintenance cost in check while ensuring that golf courses retain their pristine condition always.

There is a way and the man who is going to help golf courses in the Asia Pacific along a win-win pathway to maintenance cost control is multi-award winning golf course architect, Brian Curley, principal of Schmidt-Curley Design, the firm behind the giant Mission Hills Complex in Shenzhen, Dongguan and Haikou in China. Curley is arguably one of the most successful course designers operating in Asia.

Sign up now to listen to Curley as he shares his thoughts on how you can cut your maintenance costs and still come out tops in keeping your golf course in supreme condition.
