Chicago Show Show is a Cure for the Polar Vortex
February 22 - 24, 2019
By Brian Weis
The 36th annual Chicago Golf Show presented by French Lick Resort, running February 22 - 24 at the Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, will offer golfers a cure for their Cabin Fever, providing a chance to swing the newest golf clubs, take free lessons from PGA pros, and score great deals on clubs, balls, shoes, apparel and more.
With more than 350 booths, a 3,000 square foot driving range, and a chance to putt at multiple interactive golfing stations, it will feel like Spring for the more than 17,000 golfers that typically attend the event.
Every paid attendee will receive one free round of golf from a participating Chicagoland course, including Foxford Hills, Settler's Hill, and Whittaker Woods, courtesy of GolfVisions, when they present their ticket inside the show.
"We invite golfers to start the season on the right foot by joining us at this year's Chicago Golf Show," said Carrie Williams, executive director of the Illinois PGA. "The Illinois PGA is a longtime supporter and beneficiary of the Chicago Golf Show and our members provide complimentary lessons."
In addition to great deals on all things golf, attendees can discover dozens of golf travel destinations ready to help them plan their golf trips, many of which are raffling off fabulous weekend getaways. French Lick Resort, for one, is giving away a Golf Foursome vacation valued at $2,400, featuring two rooms for a two-night stay, plus rounds on the resort's renowned Donald Ross and Pete Dye courses.
This year, daring golfers that sink an 85-foot putt in the ever-popular Chicago's Longest Putt contest will win two tickets to this year's BMW Championship. The winners will then be part of a drawing in which one lucky winner will receive two tickets to the tournament's uber-exclusive Green Coat Club, valued at $1,590.
Former Chicago Bears Patrick Mannelly and Emery Moorehead will be among the special guests on this year's Daily Herald Main Stage, which will be highlighted by trick shot artist Peter Longo, WGN-TV'S "King of Clubs." The 2018 Illinois PGA Teacher of the Year, updates on rule changes, and information on how to become a caddie - and potentially earn a college scholarship - will be featured as well.
Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance at www.chicagogolfshow.com.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.

In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
