North Coast Golf and Travel Shows is bringing a Long Island golf expo back to Brentwood after an extended absence.
Suffolk Community College will host the Long Island Golf & Travel Show -- sponsored by the Metropolitan PGA, Golfing Magazine, Golf Magazine and The Inn at Pocono Manor -- from Friday, March 3 to Sunday, March 5. The show will feature driving and putting challenges, demo areas, free instruction and golf entertainment, among other activities. Participating vendors include courses, equipment companies, resort destinations and golf retailers.
Members of the Metropolitan PGA and Metropolitan Golf Association will be on the main stage throughout the weekend to discuss techniques and rule changes. While much of the show is focused on discount equipment, gear, hands-on demos and golf getaways, you can find some Long Island representation at the Golfing Magazine and MGA booths.
Admission is $12 (cash only) and comes with a one-year subscription to Golf Magazine. Kids 12 and under are admitted free. Show hours are Friday 1:00 to 7:00 p.m.; Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
