How do you put a price on a golden (Golfdom Summit) ticket?

By |  January 26, 2016 0 Comments

You can’t just pack a bag, get on an airplane and go to the Golfdom Summit and hang out with Annika Sorenstam, 40 select superintendents, 15 of golf maintenance’s best companies and the Golfdom staff.

No, you have to be invited. That’s one of the things that makes the Golfdom Summit so cool — its exclusivity.

But now, there are two “golden tickets” out there waiting to be snatched up by two lucky superintendents. One has been donated to the Environmental Institute for Golf and can be bid on here. The other has been donated to the Wee One Foundation and will be open for bidding on Thursday at the Midwest Association of Golf Course Superintendents’ monthly meeting (where I’ll be one of the guest speakers.)

So if you’ve been Jonesing for an invite to the Golfdom Summit but haven’t managed to get the invite yet, here’s your chance to jump the line and write your own ticket. Dates are Dec. 6-9, and the location is again the lovely Reunion Resort in Orlando.

Come join us, won’t you?
