Big Golf Shows Coming Up in Houston, Dallas

A couple of coming golf shows in Houston and Dallas are likely to draw golfers from around the state.

First up is the Golfest Houston, presented by Golfweek magazine. "It's not just another demo day," their marketing goes, it's a "golf lifestyle extravaganza." But what most golfers will be interested in is the demo part of the days.

Golfest Houston takes place March 4-5 at BlackHorse Golf Club. Advance tickets are $10 (get them at Edwin Watts Golf or online at, or $15 at the gate. All attendees get free balls and one free regripping by Winn Grips.

This "outdoor consumer festival" features dozens of manufacturers presenting their clubs on BlackHorse's double-ended driving range. Suzy Whaley, Marty Fleckman (BlackHorse's director of instruction), Jim Hardy (famed instructor and author of The Plane Truth for Golfers), and trick-shot artist Peter Johncke will appear both days.

Then the following weekend - March 11-12 - it's the Dallas World Golf Expo, billed as the largest golf show in Texas, at the Dallas Market Hall.

The Dallas World Golf Expo will feature more than 100 exhibitors, including manufacturers Tommy Armour (sponsoring the event), Adams, Cleveland, Wilson, Bridgestone/Precept, MacGregor, Nicklaus and Nike. Long drive, long putt and "Best Putter in North Texas" competitions will be held.

Everyone attending will get a free, one-year Golf Magazine subscription and a free, custom-fit rescue club from Magique Golf. Among the presenters at the Dallas World Golf Expo seminars will be 2-time world long-drive champion Art Sellinger, on both Saturday and Sunday.

Admission to the Dallas Golf Expo is $8. A discount coupon can be found at
