Golf Fest 2016

PHOENIX (Jan. 13, 2016)—Whispering in the air of Mesa is the buzz of one of the top outdoor shows in the country. And no, this isn’t your local country concert. Located on green fairways, the stage is being set to tee off another year of excitement. Everything new in golf will be on display at the Longbow Golf Club in Mesa on Feb. 12 and 13. Golf Fest, in its 7th year in Phoenix, will exhibit a variety of activities including free golf clinics by PGA pros, a trick shot exhibition and a long drive clinic.

But wait—there’s more. With a special surprise, this year’s show will feature Lynn ‘Capt’n Crush’ Ray’s Guinness World Record attempt for the most 300-yard drives hit in one hour. Since having his record broken by Andrew Frakes of 448 golf balls hit in 2013, Ray will try to reclaim his place in history on both days of the show. Other current records Ray boasts include most golf balls driven in 12 hours (3,781), most golf balls hit with a driver in one hour indoors (669) and most golf balls hit with a driver in 12 hours indoors (4,801).

If that’s not enough jam-packed action, attendees will also be able to meet representatives from premier golf companies ranging from TaylorMade, Cleveland, Cobra, Callaway, Titleist, Adams, Ping, Wilson and more. These companies will be offering golfers a chance to test their latest clubs and equipment for all to try out as well as offering incredible deals on shoes,clothing, tee times, and much more.

Golf Fest attendees will also receive a certificate good for a free round of golf at Longbow Golf Club (with tee time restrictions and a cart fee) along with a one-year subscription to Golf Digest.
