Several companies have stepped into a sponsorship role for the ING Fall Forum, set for Nov. 28-Dec. 1 at the charming Inn On The Lakes in Sebring, Fl. The International Network of Golf will conduct a gathering of golf media and business executives for the purpose of networking, product introduction, information sharing, golf and general memory making.
Proud 90 has signed on as the official apparel company for the ING Fall Forum, and will showcase its unique line of men’s and women’s golf shirts and pullovers in a 20-minute press conference during the event. Other companies participating in press conferences include Buckets Golf, Makefield Putters and Zero Friction Golf. Many of those companies will participate in prizes and giveaways, as will OnCore Golf. The Citrus Golf Trail is the host sponsor.
ZERO FRICTION is known industry wide for being on the cutting edge when it comes to introducing new products to players and creative packaging for its retail partners. Zero Friction provides high-quality, technologically advanced products for golfers worldwide, including gloves, performance golf tees, balls and accessories.
PROUD 90 is not exactly your traditional golf clothing company. But with bright colors, exciting designs and quality material, Proud 90 is making its mark on the golf industry. From the company: “No matter what your handicap, we take pride in making the most comfortable and best-fitting polos on the market. Match that quality of construction with eye-catching designs, and it’s a winning formula.”
ONCORE GOLF provides high performance golf balls for all skill levels using cutting edge golf technology. The company is the first to offer a series of perimeter weighted golf ball designs. The line includes ELIXR, AVANT 55 and VERO X1 golf balls.
MAKEFIELD PUTTERS are designed with Path of Inertia, which naturally guides your stroke, balances the club face to the path, and provides centeredness of impact to produce an immediate, consistent roll that lowers your golf scores. In combination with golf driver weight technology in the putters, Makefield Putters have endless customization options.
CITRUS GOLF TRAIL is the Golf Value Destination of America. The courses build on the natural beauty of authentic Florida. Many wind around moss-covered oaks and preserves that provide a great backdrop for course designs. The courses include Sun-n- Lakes, Country Club of Sebring, Pinecrest, Golf Hammock, Sebring Municipal. and River Greens. Inn On The Lakes is among the hotels that package with the golf courses.
BUCKETS GOLF was founded by two weekend warriors whose love of the game far exceeds their ability to play, but never let that get in the way of a good time on the golf course. Buckets Golf equipment and apparel will bring the fun without compromising on quality.
A unique element to the ING Fall Forum will be attendees’ participation in the Pro-Am for the annual Citrus Golf Trail Open, a Minor League Golf Tour event at Sun ‘N Lake Golf Club with a $20,000 first prize to the winning professional. The Tuesday morning Pro-Am field will be limited to the first 30 ING attendees to register.
The remainder of the schedule will consist of more golf, a Social Marketing Seminar led by Sabrina Andolpho, product presentations and networking, plus some ecellent dining. The Durland Cup Scramble, named after longtime ING Board Member and golf committee chair Larry Durland, will be conducted on Wednesday, Nov. 29 at Sebring Golf Club.
Entry fee is $150 for working media, and $295 for business executives and golf company representatives.
Companies can also reserve a press conference slot, during which they will present information about their company and products to the attendees. Those are $450, or $695 as a complete conference package.
