That trip will go to the person who earns the most points by bringing in new members to the 27th Annual ING Spring Conference May 21-25 at the World Golf Village and Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, FL. Any member who signs up at least one new attendee to the ING Spring Conference will earn a prize – a dozen golf balls, ING shirt or something of similar value.
A special runner-up prize will go to the person who signs up the most individuals, IF that person does not win the Grand Prize (which is based on a points formula).
The non-profit International Network of Golf is the industry’s only media-based networking organization. ING is “where the media and golf industry connect.” Anyone in the golf industry and media is invited to join and attend.
French Lick is home to two incredible hotels – the French Lick Springs Resort Hotel and the stunning West Baden domed hotel – and two of the top-ranked golf courses in Indiana.
The Pete Dye Course hosted the 2015 Senior PGA Championship, won by Colin Montgomerie, and has hosted the annual Legends of LPGA Championship since 2013. Legendary designer Pete Dye carved the course into the hillside of one of the highest points in Indiana to create a unique and scenic Indiana golf experience.
Originally constructed in 1917 by world-renowned architect Donald Ross, the legendary Ross course has been home to many regional and national tournaments including the 1924 PGA Championship. This classic course recently underwent a $5 million restoration.
THE GRAND PRIZE PACKAGE INCLUDES:
- Accommodations for three nights at the French Lick Resort
- Two rounds of golf for two
- Three days of breakfast for two
- Dinner for two
