The 2012 Seattle Golf Show was a well attended event!
Show organizers are estimating approx 12,000 people came through the doors! While the sheer numbers speak to the success and popularity of the show, for us, the real measure of success is the one on one conversations with show attendees.
For two days, February 11 and 12, John Jacoby, Head Professional Shannon Lake Golf Course and Sam Pridham, Golf Professional Kelowna Springs, represented Kelowna's golf product. Their account of the show was extremely positive. The interest and knowledge of our destination is strong and show attendees expressed that they are, or will be, considering travel to Kelowna in 2012.
Could it be that we are entering a time when our neighbors to the south take the short trip to Kelowna and experience the variety and quality of golf product?
I for one, remain optimistic and welcome the opportunity to host our US neighbors.
