KPMG's tenth Golf Business Forum will be held in St Andrews next June.

The Fairmont St Andrews resort, just outside the historic town, will play host to the conference, which has become one of the leading gathering points for the golf industry in Europe and surrounding regions. The even will take place from 3-5 June.

KPMG partner Andrea Sartori, the founder of the Forum, said: “As the Golf Business Forum is celebrating its tenth anniversary, it is appropriate that we should meet at the home of golf, St Andrews. Over the past decade, we have welcomed many of the most powerful people in golf and business, and significant ideas and introductions have been made – it was here that the European Tour’s Race to Dubai was conceived and first discussed.

“The event remains focused on the development of golf venues and facilities internationally, and Scotland has been immensely influential in the export of golf as a sport and business for more than a century. The next two years are an especially important time for Scotland, as it looks forward to hosting the Ryder Cup in 2014, and a number of new golf courses, resorts and golf-related real estate projects continue to be developed.”
