I'm under orders from the Head Devel to write about the Scottish Golf Show, which was held at Glasgow's Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre last weekend.
I looked in on two of the three days and here are my impressions.
It was anything but the Luck of the Devel that the weather was more Spain than Scotland in mid-March.
On Saturday and Sunday the sun was splitting the sky – which had an inevitable effect on the numbers visiting the show.
The reason was obvious. After four months of the wettest weather ever recorded, any golfer of a sane mind was naturally heading out onto the course.
So for the organisers to boast that the show was “absolutely buzzing” was, I'm afraid, some way off the mark.
At one point on Sunday morning there were probably more people in church than at the SECC – and these days that's saying something.
Like many other exhibitors, the Head Devel wasn't best pleased by the lower-than-expected attendances. Nevertheless, he felt the decision to exhibit was worthwhile.
Like the London Golf Show last November it was a great opportunity to network with people of a like mind.
Particularly enjoyable was the visit to the stand from the larger-than-life Kevin Craggs.
It's only a pity we can't share with you the OTHER Nicholas Colsaerts hotel window video!
Kevin, who coaches Melissa Reid and Kylie Walker among others, is always bursting with good humour and innovative ideas.
His golf clinic at the show was one of the most popular features.
The Head Devel was also delighted to meet the fine people from the John Hartson Foundation.
The outcome is that Devel Golf now has a tie-in with John's #KnowYourBalls Golf Day at Mar Hall on April 20.
It's an event packed with sporting celebrities and all the proceeds are going to raise awareness of testicular cancer. Details available on their website.
There was also an enthusiastic public response for the company's latest product – the Lucky Devel Ball Marker.
Uniquely made from slate, sales were good and it drew favourable comments about its quality and design.
The Head Devel also used his visit to Glasgow to meet with various Scottish contacts who are interested in forging a relationship with Devel Golf.
Some of these look highly promising.
As we say in the old writing business, watch this space.
