Another long winter in Alberta is over, we hope... and a sure sign apart from robins, geese and snow disappearing were the PGA of Alberta golf shows in Edmonton and Calgary.
The events are a great opportunity for golfers to get their hands on the newest in clubs, shoes and of course grab a deal or two in the discount centre.
As far as the Calgary show went, there were plenty of courses showing what they are all about ranging from Southern Alberta, southeastern B.C., Montana, Mesquite, Nevada as well as newcomers from the Dominican Republic and Mexico.

In the “olden days” one had to go to a golf course, and into the pro shop to meet the golf professionals face to face. Nowadays however, the Alberta PGA is on the road to making that initial meet-and-greet a little easier by putting the pros’ faces out in the community to better interact with the general public.

Phil Berube, the executive director of the Alberta PGA, explained that a trial run with such an undertaking proved to be a huge success in Calgary last year and as such the association is looking forward to growing the game through more of the same this year.
