AGIF Turfgrass Management Expo in Siam

Written by:

Pattaya, Thailand: Siam Country Club’s Plantation Course will be the venue for the Asian Golf Industry Federation’s (AGIF) 2019 Turfgrass Management Exposition.

Highlights from last year’s AGIF Turfgrass Management Expo in Pattaya.

More than 250 course superintendents and club managers from 20 countries are expected to attend the seventh edition of the event (March 11), that will showcase the very latest in golf course equipment and machinery.

Held under the auspices of the Thai Golf Course Superintendents’ Association (TGCSA), the Expo is part of a three-day gathering in the Central Thai beach resort that is highlighted by a high-profile conference on Sustainable Turfgrass Management in Asia.

Working closely with the TGCSA, the AGIF Turfgrass Management Exposition will feature an array of equipment from 30-plus exhibitors as well as extensive product demonstrations.

Eric Lynge, the AGIF’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “Congratulations once again to the Thai Golf Course Superintendents’ Association on their positive initiatives. We thank them for their continued efforts to raise standards.”

“Traditionally, this event has proved the most popular of its kind in Southeast Asia – and this year will be no exception. All this is made possible by the support of our sponsors and exhibitors.”

“At the AGIF, we are conscious that our role is predominantly to provide support and organise part of the meeting, allowing practical training on the golf course. We are delighted to be supporting education programmes such as this.”
