NEPGA Has Heavy Presence at National Golf Expo
Heading into the third day at the Boston Golf Expo, the New England PGA is holding strong in the Seaport World Trade Center. The Boston Golf Expo runs March 2nd through March 4th in the downtown convention center. NEPGA Professionals are on hand to teach ten-minute tune up lessons to adults and junior golfers. The section also runs a Drive, Chip and Putt contest where all participants are entered in a raffle to win a free round-trip plane ticket courtesy of Turkish Airlines. The DCP contest has been widely popular amongst expo atendees, due in large part to the aboutGolf simulator used for the driving portion of the contest. Both the New England Series and NEPGA Junior Tour are running Expo specials for their respective memberships as well! Come visit us at the Seaport World Trade Center, from 10-5 on Sunday!
