Golf Club Showcase

Many clubs from England's northwest will be showcasing all they have to offer, and encouraging local golfers to play at their courses and experience their facilities. Visitors to the show can claim exclusive offers and discounted rounds of golf from exhibitors, potentially saving them more money on a round than the total price of entry into the show.

Golf Tourism Show

The Manchester Golf Show will also feature the Golf Tourism Show, where clubs from all over the UK, as well as fabulous overseas golfing destinations, will be showcasing what their respective courses and resorts have to offer. Visitors can speak directly with staff at a number of exhibition stands, or watch interactive presentations at the dedicated Golf Tourism stage.

The northwest’s only dedicated golf show

The Manchester Golf Show is the only dedicated golf show in the North West, and the popularity of the previous two events helped demonstrate the sheer number of golf fans in that part of the country. The Golf Show Group is extremely experienced in running top-quality events, having staged 18 golf shows across England over the last 10 years.
