Plenty of golfers across western New York and southern Ontario played some golf last week. Whether they hit an open course, or sneaked onto another, tees were in the ground, balls in the air and mud flying. Putts bumped along over inconsistent greens, and it was pure golf, just as it was invented to be.

If you’re thinking about the upcoming season and want to get a sense of what’s new in equipment, we have a thought. If you’re itching to learn about some new courses, within a 90-minute drive, we have a suggestion.

Here’s what show organizers have to say:
