2011 PGA of Alberta Golf Shows mark huge success with increased ticket sales, record clearance centre numbers
Following the success of the Edmonton Golf Show two weeks ago, this past weekend's Calgary Golf Show also marked a huge success with approximately 4,500 Calgary-and-area golfers walking through the door to see what the coming season has to offer. Those consumers also contributed to record-setting Clearance Centre numbers, which surpassed $150,000 for the first time in the history of the Shows.
