I've been asked to speak and share my experiences at the Symposium on Affordable Golf this fall. Specifically I'll be describing how we built so much great golf at Wolf Point for an incredibly low price. The symposium location is very cool: Pinehurst. This is the third year that Richard Mandell has hosted this grass roots event. Here is the website: http://www.symposiumonaffordablegolf.com/.

Some highlights from the Agenda:
2012 Symposium On Affordable Golf Agenda Complete
The third annual Symposium On Affordable Golf will once again be held at the Southern Pines Golf Club in Southern Pines, North Carolina on Monday and Tuesday, October 29th and 30th. This year, the Symposium will be one and a half days, followed by a golf outing on the Donald Ross-designed Southern Pines Golf Club Tuesday afternoon.
The Symposium On Affordable Golf raises awareness and understanding of the challenges of the golf industry through open discussion, exchange of ideas and highlighting successes that promote the health and sustainability of the game of golf. As in previous years, there is no fee for attendance. Also, as in past years, members of the PGA, the LPGA and the GCSAA will be eligible to receive continuing education credits.
There will be three case studies detailing successful and affordable golf operations, each from different regions of the world. Other topics include "The Curious Case of the Taj-Mahalics," "Let's Start Romancing the Game Again Instead of Selling the Business," and "Where Sustainability and GolfSpeak Intersect."
