SNAG Golf to sponsor night golf event at ING Spring Conference in Florida

LAKE MARY, Fla. -- The 23rd Annual ING Spring Conference at Reunion Resort will get off to glowing start, thanks to SNAG Golf.

SNAG will sponsor a night golf outing during opening night of this annual gathering of golf media and industry leaders, set for May 19-23, 2013 at Reunion in Orlando. 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 ING and attend the conference. Call 407-328-0500, ext. 1 for details.

SNAG Golf, which recently partnered with Jack Nicklaus to form the Jack Nicklaus Learning Leagues, will set up four to six holes on the driving range. Following the Opening Night Reception, attendees will play the course using SNAG equipment.

SNAG AFTER DARK™, a complete line of glow-in-the-dark golf equipment which includes targets, tees, balls, clubs and launch pads, is the same as regular SNAG but offers a night golf experience unmatched by anything currently on the market. The kits will come in 6-hole packages with club sizes for Kids (26" and 30") and Adults (34" and 35") or Mixed (even number of Kids and Adult clubs). The estimated cost per kit will be $2,599. Product will be available in June.

Attendees at the 23rd Annual ING Spring Conference will have the opportunity to test the latest and greatest golf products from manufacturers large and small during the popular ING Demo Lab.

Companies with golf clubs, putters and training aids get space on the range and putting green to display product. Attendees, including golf writers, broadcasters and editors from media outlets across America come through the Lab to capture first-hand knowledge of the equipment.

The 2013 ING Spring Conference will welcome approximately 160 people from all walks of the golf industry and media. The popular One-On-One Appointment Show has been expanded to two days, and the educational format has been revised to feature more customized choices.

There will also be golf events, including the World Golfers Amateur Tour National Qualifier, and the 6th Annual Durland Cup Scramble. Also on the schedule are various educational seminars and networking events.

Reunion Resort is located only 25 minutes southwest of the Orlando International Airport, and is part of the newly established Grand Golf Resorts of Florida - a Salamander Collection - along with 2011 ING host Innisbrook Resort near Tampa and Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast.

Along with the three diverse golf courses by Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson, Reunion is also home to the ANNIKA Academy of Annika Sorenstam, and the Frankly Putting PAD of Frank Thomas.

ING attendees will be treated to the incredible 3-bedroom villas for their accommodations. The villas average approximately 2,200 square feet. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and TV, and shares a spacious and well-appointed living room and kitchen with the other two bedrooms. Each villa also features a balcony and flat-screen TVs.

The ING Conference is open to everyone in the golf industry and media. For more information, visit For more information regarding Reunion Resort, visit
