12th Annual Golf Fest Opens on the Driving Range at Riverwalk

— Meet all the top club manufacturers, get a free round of golf, and lots more —

Golf Fest moves outdoors to the Riverwalk Golf Club as it celebrates its 12th annual show beginning next Friday, March 13th and continuing on through Sunday the 15th. According to the show owners, Shelly Hall and Ernie Hahn, “the new outdoor venue will provide golfers with a very convenient location and a chance to truly test clubs and ball flights right on the driving range, which has been one of the major requests we have had by past show attendees.”

Golf Fest will provide golfers with an incredible interactive golf experience. The three-day golf extravaganza will allow golfers the chance to meet all the top golf manufacturers (TaylorMade, Call-away, Ping, Nike, Cobra, Titleist, Odyssey, Cleveland and more), plus resorts, golf cours-es, and golf products like GPS devices, and more all geared to help golfers improve their games. Golf Fest attendees can also participate in FREE clinics for players of all levels by PGA pros throughout the weekend, FREE driving range use to test the latest equipment, and try their luck in some exciting golf skill contests (long drive, closest to the pin and putting contests) for great prizes.

Paid attendees will also receive a choice of a one-year subscription to Golf Digest or a six-month subscription to Golf World their choice.

Additionally, they will receive a FREE round of golf at either Riverwalk, the Vineyard or Eastlake golf courses, and a free ticket to the San Diego Celebrity Classic (formerly the Stan Humphries Celebrity Classic) just for attending. Tee time restrictions and a cart fee may apply. Riverwalk tee time certificates will be given away on Friday, Eastlake on Saturday, and The Vineyard certificates will be given away on Sunday.

When Golf Fest attendees are ready to take a break from the lure of the show¹s exhibits, they can sit back, relax and enjoy a burger and a brew in the Karl Strauss Beer Garden, and a variety of live presentations and driving range exhibitions.

The Riverwalk Golf Club is located at 1150 Fashion Valley Road, San Diego, CA 92108. Admission is $10, and children under the age of 10 will be admitted free.
