National Programs & Initiatives to grow the game



Hear it straight from the head honchos of Australian Golf. Stephen Pitt and Brian Thorburn will explain the collaborative approach the industry is adopting in delivering programs and initiatives that will grow the game. With many facilities developing their own introduction-to-golf programs, this is a chance to access resources from Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia, and build a consistent approach across the industry.

Stephen Pitt joined Golf Australia as CEO in November 2008 after two and a half years as the CEO of Golf Queensland.  In his time, Golf Australia has enjoyed notable success in its high performance program and website and digital communications programs.  It is also leading the industry with various game development programs for juniors, women and casual golfers.

Brian Thorburn is the Chief Executive Officer of the Professional Golfers Association of Australia (PGA), a position he has held since March 2011.  Brian is the Chairman of the International Golf Institute of Australia, Chairman of the AGIC (Australian Golf Industry Council), also sits on the board of the PGA World Alliance, International Federation of Tours, MyGolf Junior Golf Program and the Jack Newton Golf Foundation. 

Questions will be welcome, don’t miss the chance to meet and influence the people who are working at the very top of the golf industry in Australia.
