Lisbon, Portugal: Martin Slumbers, The R&A’s Chief Executive, will open the Club Managers Association of Europe’s (CMAE) 2019 European Conference on Club Management.

Slumbers will present the opening session of the Conference on November 17 and talk about the Destination and Future of The R&A, Golf Clubs and the Sustainability in which The R&A’s Steve Isaac is currently working with ‘Golf Course 2030’.

Golf Course 2030 (GC2030) was established in 2018 as an industry initiative to consider the impacts, both positive and negative, of the changing climate, resource constraints and regulation on course condition and playability.  

Its aim is to produce a roadmap that will steer the sport to address the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities that these issues present. 

“It’s a great honour for us to welcome Martin and we look forward to him sharing his insights with delegates,” said Torbjorn Johanssen, the CMAE’s Director of Education. “It’s just one more reason for CMAE members to sign up to this year’s conference.”

The CMAE’s European Conference takes place at Clube Naval de Cascais over two days, located on the bay of Cascais, right on the Atlantic Ocean and 11 miles from Lisbon.
