Find Out Where, When Demo Days are Taking Place

By

WENTWORTH, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 16: The HSBC Vitrual Golf Simulator at the HSBC World Match Play Championship at Wentworth Golf Club on October 16, 2004 in Wentworth, England.

Demo days are often held at driving ranges, but can also take place at pro shops that have indoor hitting bays and/or golf simulators.

Demo days are one of the most effective tools for golfers to use to learn more about their equipment and their game.

Golf demo days are events put on by the golf club companies themselves, or by the hosting golf course, practice facility or pro shop. Sometimes the event is dedicated to the equipment of just one company, other times multiple manufacturers are represented.

Company representatives are often on-site to answer questions about equipment, and staff members from the host facility are usually willing to provide quick swing checks and tips. Demo days often take place on outdoor driving ranges, but can also be held at pro shops that include indoor hitting bays.

Golfers who attend a demo day can try different shafts, different lofts, different clubs. And best of all, demo days are (almost always) free.

Golf demo days are usually promoted well in advance by the host facility. If there is a golf association in your city, that association may well have a list available of such coming events.

Find Golf Demo Days

Click on the name of the company whose equipment you are interested in trying. The link will take you to the section on that company's website where upcoming demo days are listed (if a company is not listed, it likely means they do not provide Demo Day dates on their website).

Also be vigilant when you play golf or visit a pro shop. Inside the clubhouse or pro shop, look for notices of upcoming events. If your local newspaper or golf association provides a golf calendar, that is another place to check for any coming demo days.
