2015 Bay Area Golf Show

Few sports teach as many of life's most important lessons - respect, responsibility, patience, diligence and self-discipline, to name a few - as golf.

That's why producers of the 2015 Bay Area Golf Show, Oct. 23-25 at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, are going out of their way to open the show's doors to the thousands of young golfers and golfers-to-be throughout the Bay Area, including free admission to all kids under 12, free lessons, and a passport granting free play on the show's numerous interactive games.
Every child 12 and under accompanied by a paying adult will receive free admission to this year's show, which represents the largest golf showcase of the year in the East Bay.  In addition to free admission, each child attending the golf show on Saturday, Oct. 24, and Sunday, Oct. 25, will receive a passport granting free play on all of the show's interactive games, including putting, long drive, short game and closest-to-the-pin contests. Once all the activities have been completed, turn in your passport to receive a cool golf prize! Kids will also receivefree lessons from specialized instructors, while local golf pros will take to the stage to teach you how to engage the young player in your life in the game of golf.
