To help celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Haggin Oaks Golf Expo, the team is turning back the clock and giving away the cutest little forty year-old vehicle we could find, a bright red Jeep CJ5.
It was the mid-70’s. Jaws’ Roy Schneider was telling us, “We’re gonna need a bigger boat.” Elton John was singing “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.” Union Teamster Jimmy Hoffa disappeared. One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest cleaned up at the Oscars. Betamax video tape (remember that?) was released. Pet rocks became a sensation as did mood rings, the Six Million Dollar Man and All in the Family.
And in little ol’ Sacramento, two small-town co-head golf professionals in Tom LoPresti and Ken Morton, Sr. were laying the groundwork of a small sale and demo day that would eventually grow into the largest consumer golf show in the world. What started out with humble beginnings with a couple of vendors on the range and a sidewalk sale has now expanded into an expansive show with nearly 200 different vendors.
The CJ5 will be on display directly behind our registration desk. We know that some of our golfers- we’ll say the ones that haven’t been fit with the latest and greatest driver through our Player Performance Studio- have a tendency to hit some wayward drives deep into the wild and wooly woods. Now they’ll have an appropriate vehicle to help them find their ball- no matter where it goes! One lucky attendee will have their name drawn from a free entry registration on the afternoon of Sunday, April 26. (winner doesn’t need to be present to win). No purchase necessary to enter.
The 2015 Haggin Oaks Golf Expo, “America’s Largest Demo Days”, runs Friday, April 24 through Sunday, April 26 from 9am to 5pm daily. This event is FREE for the public and features all major golf vendors and a wide variety of lifestyle and travel destinations too.
