Catriona Matthew to headline GCMA 2021 Conference

The dual Solheim Cup winning captain has been confirmed as a VIP speaker for the three-day event at Wyboston Lakes Resort next month…

Catriona Matthew will get GCMA 2021 Conference off to a winning start after being unveiled as a VIP speaker.

Fresh off a stunning 15-13 victory at Inverness in September, Europe’s Solheim Cup winning captain will regale delegates with tales of her success on the opening night of the three-day event next month.

Catriona became the only European skipper to record back-to-back successes in the 31-year history of the event, having also guided the continent to glory at Gleneagles in 2019.


Her golden playing career brought 11 professional wins, including a major at the 2009 Ricoh Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes.

She’ll be giving an insight to delegates into managing winning teams and will join former European Tour chief referee John Paramor in addressing what’s sure to be a packed Sunday audience at Wybston Lakes Resort.

GCMA 2021 Conference is being held at the Bedfordshire hotel and leisure complex between November 21 and 23. You can book by clicking here.

Catriona and John are just two of a host of impressive keynote Conference speakers, including elite athletes Chris Cook and Danielle Brown. The likes of industry giants Kevin Fish, Peter Kirk and Scott Seaborn will also be among those delivering valuable education and networking.

Breakout sessions will give attendees the tools to develop in their roles as golf club managers and a gala dinner on Monday night will showcase the best in the industry with the GCMA Manager of the Year Awards.

The GCMA is dedicated to delivering progressive, industry specific education programmes and networking opportunities whilst offering high quality personal services and support for the development of its members. This year’s Conference will aim to deliver all.

Tom Brooke, GCMA chief executive, said: “We’re proud to welcome Catriona to GCMA 2021 Conference. Watching her team retain the Solheim Cup was a true highlight of the sporting year and I can’t think of a more inspiring leader to address our conference.”

GCMA, added: “We’re absolutely thrilled Catriona will be addressing the opening night of GCMA 2021 Conference.

“Her leadership of the European Solheim Cup winning team in the USA last month was inspirational and we can’t wait to hear the stories from that success and from her incredible career.

“Alongside industry-leading learning, personal, and professional development opportunities under our event themes of Leadership and Wellbeing, Sustainability and Technology, this is just another reason why booking for GCMA 2021 Conference is a must for anyone in the golf industry.”
