Five Things to Know: Tuesday

  1. DEMO DAYGet ready to take your swings and see new things, because the 21st PGA Show Demo Day is here! There’s a full day of product testing, education and fun on tap at Orange County National Golf Center, with a new layout for companies on the massive driving range featuring multiple practice greens and short game areas. There will also be a food court with local food trucks, and Latin Grammy winner Spencer Ludwig will keep the mood poppin’ with live music and DJ tunes. The festivities start at 9 a.m. for PGA and LPGA Professionals, and other registered golf industry professionals are welcome beginning at noon. There is very limited parking on site, so we recommend taking the convenient free shuttles to and from the Orange County Convention Center.
  1. EDUCATION AT OCN – PGA Show Demo Day is about more than just testing new products – there’s also plenty to be learned from a number of industry experts on a variety of topics. For example, the Golf Range Association of America (GRAA) will be featuring enhanced programming throughout the day, with GRAA award-winners available to share best practices on range operations at the association’s expansive area at Orange County National. The PGA Show Demo Day stage will also provide attendees with access to complimentary programming on club fitting, range operations and golf business topics and coaching workshops, part of the PGA Show Education Conference, will be taking place right on the range at Tee #3.
