There’s No Better Way to Kick Off a New Year…
See You at Golf Business Conference 2023!

This Next-Level Learning & Networking is Designed for YOU!


Join hundreds of your golf course business peers in Orlando, Florida for the National Golf Course Owners Association’s Golf Business Conference 2023, Monday, January 23 through Wednesday, January 25!


The Golf Business Conference is the industry’s largest annual gathering of golf course owners, operators, general managers and others who run golf course businesses — and also serves as NGCOA’s annual meeting. GBC23 is once again co-located with the PGA Show; we encourage you to extend your time in Orlando so you can attend the 2023 PGAShow exhibits, activities and select education that is included with your GBC23 ticket.


Each year, this unparalleled event not only offers relevant and timely education delivered by expert speakers on the most critical areas of golf course operations, but provides a plethora of opportunities for networking and relationship building. Most GBC23 education will be held at the Rosen Centre Hotel (our host hotel).


If you’re responsible for the success of a golf business, you simply can’t miss GBC23.


Spend three days with us (and a few extra at the PGA Show), and then return to your golf business with new and stronger relationships, and tools and tangible plans for improving operations, enhancing marketing efforts, and increasing revenue. There’s no better way to start a new year!

2023 PGA Show — January 25–27

Our strategic alliance with the PGA of America means your GBC23 badge gives you access to much of the action at the 2023 PGA Show! The PGA Show is the most meaningful rallying point of the year for the business of golf and is the world’s doorway to the game’s future. Extend your time in Orlando through Friday, January 27 to join this dynamic international community of golf business professionals, PGA Professionals and golf industry leaders to network and test the newest products, programs and ideas to inspire innovation, create solutions, and build business and passion for the game. By discovering all that is new, you can drive more value to your facility, differentiate your shop from competitors, boost your bottom line and further your career.
