Tampa Bay Downs, Inc. says
Tampa Bay Downs, sponsored by Valspar, is excited to present its sixth annual Golfest celebration! The area’s largest golf show is held Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 6-7, at The Downs Golf Practice Facility.

Players of all ability levels get the chance to sample and purchase the newest equipment from the industry’s top manufacturers, among them, TaylorMade, PING, Callaway, Mizuno, Cobra and others.

Also planned for the two-day Golfest: a Celebrity Golf Skills Challenge with special guests like PGA Tour professional Chris DiMarco and actor Christopher McDonald (aka Shooter McGavin from Happy Gilmore); a silent auction featuring all manner of appealing items up for bid, including a trip to the season’s first major professional tournament in Georgia (with proceeds to benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation); a $1-million Hole-in-One Contest; and, new to Golfest this year, the Long Drive Launcher experience, where attendees test out a powerful and accurate golf ball launcher for great prizes (www.facebook.com/longdrivelauncher).

Golfest is held February 6-7, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday, at The Downs Golf Practice Facility. All ages are welcome; admission is $10 (free for kids 14 and younger).
