DSG at Day 1 of the Cleveland Golf Show

The sun was shining....the temperature was (for mid-February) a balmy 42 degrees...a man's thoughts turned to tees, greens and fairways in between.

Perfect conditions, I surmised, to go to the I-X Center in Cleveland to check out Day 1 of the Cleveland Golf Show.

The aisles on the exhibition floor were full of bargain-hunters and other folks anxious to immerse themselves again in all things golf. Exhibitors include: merchandisers of golf equipment, clothes, bag, shoes and gadgets of all sorts; golf courses and resorts from our area and surrounding states; companies offering reasonably-priced golf vacation packages. And, of course, there are practice areas where golfers of all sizes and stripes can experience the sweet sensation of club face colliding with ball.

I gave myself three hours to roam the floor. The primary objective was to make contacts with folks representing affordable golf destinations that could be subjects of upcoming profiles in this space.

These plans could change at a moment's notice, but it appears the "Affordabili-TEES'' trip in March will carry me along the I-65 corridor through southern Tennessee and Alabama. Looking forward to that big-time.

Looking forward to another season of fairways and greens!
