Golfest 2009

Every year prior to the PGA Merchandise show, there’s a two day event open to the public called Golfest.  It’s $10 a person and as far as I know, it’s sort of a dry run for the folks who are participating in demo day.

This years Golfest 2009 is taking place out at Orange County National on Saturday,  January 24th & Sunday 25th from 9am -4pm.

Orange County National

Here’s a list of some of the activities.

    I dunno Bill, shoveling snow off the roof could be enjoyable, probably more so for spectators than participants though… 🙂
