This post is a tad late, but better late than tomorrow……..
Because the Southern New England Golf Expo is starting tonight at Twin River Casino. It’s for golf aficionados willing to make the drive this weekend to the Twin River Event Center and started today at 1:00pm.
General Admission is $13.00 and includes a one year subscription to Golf Digest, $25.00 Golf and Cart Special deals to Laurel Lane CC, Country View GC and Pine Ridge CC and a two for one special to Maplegate CC.
“I think the expo does a good job bringing people together,” said Mike Harbour, a Class “A” Professional Golfers Association member and owner of Mike Harbour Golf Instruction & Indoor Golf Center, which has locations in Warren, Johnston and Cranston. “It gets them to see some of the new products that are available out there.” He added that exposure to different country clubs gives people an idea of how much money they’ll have to spend to play golf at these facilities.
The show has grown from two days last year to three days this year – it’s running Feb. 26-28 – and will feature a variety of golf vendors, discounts on local courses, lessons, an indoor driving range and a fashion show.
The event will also feature retail specialists: Joe and Leigh’s Discount Pro Shop, Game Improvement, GolfTec and more. Beginning one hour into each day there will be speakers on a variety of topics to improve your golf game. There will be a lesson or talk every 45 minutes through 4 p.m. daily. The event will also featue interactive exhibits, SkyTrak golf simulators, long drive and closest to the pin contests, lesson tee.
So, whether you’re a pro in waiting, or a weekend duffer, get your golf court on to Twin a River Casino Event Center.
