"See end of piece for a description of what is The Yorkshire Mafia"

Leeds Golf Centre will take centre stage at Leeds' Saviles Hall this week as it demonstrates the superb TruSim indoor golf simulator at the Yorkshire Mafia Conference 2012.

Forming the centrepiece of Leeds Golf Centre's brand-new travelling roadshow, the impressive indoor golf simulator features the very latest in tuition and gameplay technology. Utilising FlightScope - a specialist radar device that tracks ball spin and velocity - as well as TruSim golf course graphics, the facility permits players to enjoy the thrill of world-famous golf courses in an indoor environment.

Visitors will have the opportunity to compete in a unique 'nearest-the-pin' competition, being given just three attempts to record the most accurate shot. The winner will receive a month's complimentary membership to Leeds Golf Centre in summer; should anyone be lucky enough to record a 'hole-in-one', the prize will be upgraded to six months' free membership.

Leigh Tasker, Business Development Manager at Leeds Golf Centre, commented: " Tenacity, candour and determination are time-honoured Yorkshire traits and The Yorkshire Mafia's remarkable rise in prominence demonstrates everything you need to know about the regional business community's belief in them. We are tremendously excited about the conference and look forward very much to showing visitors what Leeds Golf Centre - 'the home of modern golf' - has to offer."

The Yorkshire Mafia Conference 2012 is doubling in size in just its second year, occupying both the Armouries Hall and the neighbouring Saviles Hall at The Royal Armouries on the 21 st and 22 nd March. Hosting 154 exhibitors and attracting more than 3000 business professionals, the event is set to be the year's biggest business-to-business event outside of London.

Featuring the best speaker line up seen in Yorkshire for years, the conference features Colin Graves, Founder and Chairman of Costcutter Supermarkets and Chairman at Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Lawrence Tomlinson, Founder of LNT Group and The Lord Kirkham CVO, Founder of DFS as well as social and digital media representatives from LinkedIn, Google and Facebook amongst many other leading figures in business.

News of Leeds Golf Centre's presence at YMC 2012 follows last week's launch of a brand-new competitive golf tournament for Leeds' business community. The inaugural Leeds Corporate Golf League - a unique competition that will see 16 teams competing predominantly from the professional services and property sectors - has been designed by Leeds Golf Centre to offer an affordable alternative to standard corporate golf days. The format is proving popular, with only half the available berths remaining for sale exclusively at YMC 2012.

Founded in Nov 2008 the group has become the must join business membership organisation in Yorkshire.

The principle is that YM members do business with other YM members....and therefore retain economic benefit for the region.

It's essentially a more dynamic version of the Chamber of Commerce
