The Golf Show by American Golf attracts thousands

March 10, 2016

A week on from its inaugural Golf Show, American Golf is still enjoying the overwhelmingly positive reaction it has had from trade and consumers alike. Attendance on all days exceeded expectations, with queues out of the door on both the Saturday and Sunday.

The event promised family fun and whether they were watching the stage shows, racing go-karts or putting on the crazy golf track - that is exactly what visitors got. The driving range bays proved popular as did the opportunity to take lessons with one of the American Golf PGA Pros. Hannah Barwood, PGA Pro at the American Golf Hambrook store commented, "we were busy all weekend giving lessons and tips to visitors. The facilities were fantastic and it was such fun to get face to face with golfers of all ages and abilities. The atmosphere was amazing."

Also popular were the Long Drive, Nearest the Pin and Longest Putt competitions. The Longest Putt was won by Mark Howes who will be enjoying an Odyssey custom fitting experience with Phil Kenyon. Raph Richards and John Reddy both won a Taylormade M2 Fairway Wood as their Nearest the Pin prizes with Reddy getting closest at 3ft 4". Ade Smith was the Long Drive winner on Saturday, but he was out driven by Sunday's winner Adam Hussain who hit 346 yards on the Foresight GC2. Both won a Garmin S20.

The confirmed exhibitors read like a who's who of golf: Benross, Bushnell, Callaway, Cleveland, Cobra, FootJoy, Galvin Green, Garmin, Golphin for Kids, Motocaddy, National Golf Month, Nike, Palm Grove, PING, PowaKaddy, Srixon, Stewart Golf Trolleys, Taylormade, Tee Off Times, Titleist, Tom Tom, U.S. Kids, Wilson and Yonex.

"We'd really like to thank all of the brands and our charity On Course Foundation for their support. With their help we've managed to create a really special event that people have absolutely loved. It's been great to see so many families here, getting involved and having a lot of fun. It's really exceeded all our expectations," commented Daniel Gathercole, Head of Marketing at American Golf.
