Get Your Swing in Shape
Annual show includes everything under one roof By Colin Anderson
Blessed with dozens of courses in the region or within a short drive, Inland Northwest golfers have plenty of variety in which to challenge their skills or experience something new. You can find information on a slew of these courses and get yourself a free round of golf and other discounts by attending the annual Spokane Golf & Travel Show February 22 and 23 at the Spokane Convention Center.
Your $12 admission includes a free round of golf at The Fairways in Cheney. Buy your tickets in advance online and you get to select an additional bonus of either free greens fees or discounted fees at 11 additional courses including Circling Raven, Wandermere and Twin Lakes Village.
Once inside the show, you’ll find just about everything you need to get you fired up for the upcoming golf season and, as a bonus, find many unique places to visit and vacation this summer. With more than 100 exhibitors, you’ll find everything from the latest technology in clubs and balls to muscle and fatigue recovery, regional tourism representatives and many local businesses.
This is the time to get the most bang for your buck at some of the top courses in the region. Most booths offer show-only specials that can include buy one get one free round, reduced greens fees, discounted range passes and other specials. You can enter to win overnight stay and play packages, and retailers will also be offering steep discounts on clubs, bags and balls.
For those who want to showcase their skills against the best in the region, there are tough shot, long drive and putting competitions. If you are looking to upgrade your old equipment, there is a golf club swap on site, and Wide World of Golf has a try and buy setup where you can test out the season’s newest technology. Kids and adults can receive professional instruction, and children 12 and younger will each receive a free club.
