Scotland’s Day in the Sun

For the third year running, Scotland held a golf day at Celebration Golf Club prior to the annual PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.

The field of 72 golfers who attended the Scotland Golf Day included golf writers, US-based golf tour operators, Scottishbased suppliers and golf influencers all of whom have a strong interest in growing golf tourism into Scotland.

The day, which is a GTS-led initiative sponsored by VisitScotland and Scottish Development International, had a dash of extra colour thanks to Slanj Trews which provided tartan trousers to all those exhibiting on this year’s Scotland stand. (We assume that GTS Board Member Fraser Cromarty pictured right is fashioning a pair)

GTS chairman Lee Derrick commented: “The Scotland Golf Day is now gaining a reputation as an informal platform to strengthen and forge new working relationships, so much so, that this year we could have opened the event up to over 100 people.”
