Golfballs.com hosts its annual “Demo Day” at Lafayette Golf Academy on Kaliste Saloom Road from noon-6 p.m. Friday. There is no charge for participants, who may hit as many balls and with as many different clubs and brands as they desire. More than a dozen nationally-known equipment companies will be represented and will have their newest clubs and equipment available for area golfers to sample and try out.
“It’s a great opportunity for golfers to see and ‘test-drive’ all the new products that are currently out there,” says Golfballs.com Director of Purchasing Jamie McNamara.
Information on Demo Day is available at the Golfballs.comRetailCenter located at 126 Arnould Blvd. in Lafayette. No pre-registration is required, but all registered participants will receive a free gift bag and will be eligible for other prizes.
