Denver Golf Expo Special Section

Kickstart Your Game in 2020

By Joe Grant DIVOT Contributing Writer

It’s a “jumpstart to the Colorado golf season,” a “landmark event on the calendar” and “the best consumer golf show in the country.”

Hosannas such as these have rained upon the Denver Golf Expo for more than a quarter century. The largest show of its kind in the Rocky Mountain region with more than 140 vendors, it annually draws more than 12,000 avid, occasional and beginning golfers to The Denver Mart in February.

Some will come for deals, others to try new clubs, to get a free lesson or to introduce the sport to their children, grandchildren or significant others. Whatever the motivation, however, the majority are just itching to immerse themselves in a game winter has precluded them from playing.

Mark and Lynn Cramer, avid golfers who have co-owned the Expo for the last 20 years, clearly know the feeling. “Like most people, we haven’t picked up a club for months,” Mark says. “So getting folks to come before the season starts—and two weeks after all the new equipment launches at the PGA Merchandise Show in Florida— really gets everyone’s juices flowing. That’s why we say, ‘Just play.’”

GET DEALS The Denver Golf Expo stirs those juices with unreal deals on new equipment,

rounds all over the state, lessons, clothing, membership programs and more. The Expo also stages hourly giveaways for some sweet swag (to be eligible, all you have to do is complete a brief attendee questionnaire near the entrance), including a $3,000 trip for two to Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. Bargains abound, including those on absolute latest drivers, irons, wedges and putters from top manufacturers at the Lenny’s Golf Club Demo area. You also can tap the swing knowledge of the PGA professionals at the GOLFTEC booth and glean the game-improvement expertise of PGA and LPGA Professionals during seminars on the Main Stage. Looking to take your game on the road? Representatives from dozens of golf destinations across the country will tempt you with info and incentives.

TEST YOUR SKILLS Like competing? The Expo features three opportunities: Closest to the Pin, Long Drive and the Long Putt Challenge.

Sponsored by Stan Sayers Golf, the Closest to the Pin contest utilizes a Trackman to gauge your shot’s proximity on a simulated par 3. The closest to the pin all three days will qualify for a Sunday afternoon playoff, with the winner receiving a stayand-play golf package at Kaanapali Royal GC on Maui. The Long Putt Challenge, sponsored by

TPC Colorado at Heron Lakes, gives you the opportunity to sink two putts from a distance of more than 60 feet. Tickets and VIP Packages to the Korn Ferry Tour’s TPC Colorado Championship at Heron Lakes await each day’s winners.

Co-sponsored by Optimum Golf and Lifetime Windows and Siding, the Long Drive Contest invites you to grip it and rip it on a Foresight GC2 Simulator. Winners in multiple categories receive indoor lesson packages at Optimum Golf’s state-of-theart facility in Park Hill. GET EDUCATED Colorado’s most comprehensive golf show is also its most authoritative, due to the strong support of the Colorado PGA Section, Colorado Golf Association and the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado.

Upon arriving, head directly to the Colorado PGA booth, where you can sign up for free (and thus wildly popular) 10minute lessons with a talented Colorado PGA professional. Your “tee time” might not come for hours, but it will be worth it to shake the winter rust off your game. Swing by the Colorado Golf Association booth to learn all about the new World Handicap System, which has standardized how indexes are calculated around the globe. Another difference is that handicaps will be updated instantly, rather than through the revision system. Discover how

these changes will affect you at the CGA booth or at one of the organization’s seminar presentations. The CGA will also promote the benefits of membership, which extend beyond a hat and a handicap to discounts on apparel, golf equipment, rental cars, hotels, Avalanche and Nuggets tickets and other perks, including trips to Bandon, Kohler, Streamsong, Sand Valley and Ireland.

If you have a budding golfer, head to the Junior Golf Experience, the interactive golf concourse of the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado. Ask about the JGAC Youth on Course program, which lets kids between ages 6 and 17 play golf for $5 at 30 courses; the Drive, Chip and Putt program that could send your kid to Augusta National; and the life-changing benefits of the Solich Caddie and Leadership Academy.

THE DGE DIFFERENCE Food, alcohol and live music add ambience, but “what separates the Denver Golf Expo from others is Mark and Lynn are golfers,” says Colorado Golf Association Executive Director Ed Mate of owners. “They love the game. It’s who they are. As a result, the Denver Golf Expo has the same vibe and energy as the big PGA Merchandise Show in Florida— only on a smaller scale. It captures the essence of the game and it really resonates with golfers.” D

Take a Spin at South Suburban

That relationship extends to everyone who attends the Expo. The Cramer’s and Ramsey have baked into the Expo ticket price the early-season discounts of SSP&R’s Fore Golf Program. “We want to give people an incentive to come out at least once a week to practice or play,” Ramsey says. “The more they go out, the

And, Ramsey says, SSPRD has already improved on many of its facilities for 2020:

• Lone Tree, a tournament-level, Arnold Palmer-designed course with five sets of tees, this year will serve golfers “with a completely remodeled, well-stocked golf shop with an entirely new look” Ramsey says.

• South Suburban’s 18-hole Dick Phelps design features some of the state’s fiddliest greens—including a newly built

• Family Sports—which complements its 9-hole, par-31, executive course with a superb practice area and lessons from its PGA pros and those from GOLFTEC— has outfitted every bay on its double-deck, open-late-all-year driving range with new heaters “to upgrade player comfort.”

Family Sports Center Golf 303-649-1115

• Littleton Golf & Tennis Club, a par63 executive course in name only, continues to pride itself on tremendous conditioning and female- and familyfriendliness, while offering challenge of tree- and water-lined fairways.

“The Expo allows us to connect with people who want to be involved in the game and want to play more golf,” Ramsey says. “When it comes to growing the game programs, the Expo is one the best.” D

The district has worked hand-in-glove with the Expo for the 19 years Mark and Lynn Cramer have owned the event. “Mark’s a member at Lone Tree Golf Club, one of our courses, and a past club champion. The first year, I helped him out with some mats and range balls,” Ramsey says. “We’ve always had a good relationship.”

They are also more likely to queue up at the SSP&R booth. The crowds give Ramsey and his staff the opportunity to spend time with customers. They can introduce new players to the four SSP&R courses—Lone Tree, South Suburban Golf Course, Family Sports Golf Course and the Littleton Golf and Tennis Club— and visit with members who “tell us what we’re doing right and what we need to improve upon,” Ramsey says.

Where the Girls Are

Colorado will make golf history this summer when the world’s top 156 female amateurs (ages 18 years and younger) compete in the 2020 U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship at Eisenhower Golf Club’s Blue Course in Colorado Springs. Taking place July 13-20, the tournament will mark the first time a military course has hosted a USGA Championship and that a junior golf organization—the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado— has served as host organization.

Don’t just attend this historic event. Participate in it! Stop by the Junior Golf Association of Colorado (JGAC) booth, located in the Junior Golf Experience area, at the Expo and become one of the 250 volunteers needed to handle marshaling, player registration, scoring, transportation and dozens of other responsibilities—including caddying. Volunteers will receive a complimentary uniform (including shirt, hat and pullover), a meal per shift and the opportunity to play the Robert Trent Jones-designed Blue Course during Volunteer Appreciation Day.

If time doesn’t allow you to volunteer, find out how you can support it by becoming an event sponsor, or get involved with one of the “Year of the Woman” initiatives that accompanies the U.S. Junior Girls’ Championship.

The JGAC—a partnership formed by the Colorado PGA and Colorado Golf Association—is leveraging this monumental occasion “to introduce more women, young and old, to the game through events leading up to the champi-

Eisenhower Golf Club’s Blue Course in Colorado Springs

onship,” according to Colorado PGA Executive Director Eddie Ainsworth.

At the JGAC booth, you’ll learn more about the calendar of fun events, which encourage participation, celebrate golf and spotlight women from different backgrounds who love the game. You can also learn about the groundbreaking Women’s Leadership Summit

that will take place the day before the US Junior Girls’ Championship at the Air Force Academy. The luncheon event, which will feature a panel including PGA President Suzy Whaley, aims to empower the next generation of female leaders by providing the content, tools, mentoring and networking opportunities to support career advancement—and, appropriate to the occasion, make some history. D

Pick Up Some New Sticks For the tenth consecutive year, Lenny’s Golf Shop will occupy the most real estate at the Denver Golf Expo. Its 12,000-square-foot space—more than three times the size of its store at 2601 S. Parker Road in Aurora—includes a 15-bay Club Demo area, where you can not only hit the latest and greatest from Callaway, TaylorMade, Titleist, Ping, Cobra, Mizuno and other major manufacturers, but also talk to representatives from these companies about new lines that just launched two weeks earlier.

“It’s a cool time of year, because every company has a product launching in January,” says Nick Nosewicz, the store’s general manager and the son of storeowner Lenny Nosewicz. “The Expo is the first time the public can hit products like, say, the Callaway Mavrik, and also get pricing that can be $100 less than what you’d pay in the store.”

Golfers pay for their sticks at the Expo and pick them at Lenny’s, whose master fitters will fit them for free. “If you only sell clubs, you’re only doing half the job,” Nosewicz says. “They’re tools, not jewels. Fitting is crucial. Part of my success (he won the 2015 Colorado Golf Association Match Play and advanced to the Round of 32 in the 2019 U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship) owes to the fact my clubs—from putter to driver—fit me.”

He has Lenny’s team of seven master club-fitters to thank for that—as do thousands of amateur and professional golfers from Colorado and other states. They trust Lenny’s to fine-tune their clubs’ loft, lie, shaft and grip appropriate to their swing speed, launch angle, spin rate, carry distance and other metrics. “We’re all about setting up a future relationship in the shop,” Nosewicz shares.

That shop, at the corner of Parker and Havana, utilizes Foresight launch monitors and other technologies to analyze every type of swing and optimize equipment accordingly.

One thing the shop lacks, however, is the kind of square footage that bigger retailers have to stock shirts, shoes, pants, swing aids, bags, accessories and other ‘soft goods.’ The Expo solves that problem. “Having all that room at the Expo lets us pretend we’re a big box retailer for three days,” Nosewicz says with a laugh. “We have screaming deals on shirts, shoes and other products that I, as a golfer, would want.”

Lenny’s additional inventory has grown every year, but so have the lines to buy it. “We’ve always focused on deals, but people don’t want to wait 20 minutes just to get a great deal on golf balls,” the GM says. “So this year we’re focusing on streamlining, efficiency and logistics.

Lenny and Nick Nosewicz Bring their Best Golf Deals of the Year to the Expo We’re going to enrich the experience without adding to the cost. You’re still going to get great deals.” D DIVOTMagazine.com l Expo Issue 2020

Denver Golf Expo Special Section That equates to more time at the place Golf Digest rated the No. 1 Golf Resort in North America. It also means more time to walk the courses that the publication ranked among the top 15 public courses in the United States, and more stories to share over meals in one of the resort’s six award-winning restaurants.

Win a trip to Bandon Dunes!

In their classic 2010 book, True Links, authors George Peper and Malcolm Campbell controversially identify 246 courses in the world that fit the definition of a proper links course. North America, they contend, has exactly four such courses, and three of them—Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes and Old Macdonald—are at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon.

Friday, Feb. 7

At this year’s Denver Golf Expo, one lucky attendee* (and companion) will win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience all three courses, plus the resort’s other two layouts, Bandon Trails and the unique par-3 Shorty’s.**

It’s called the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort Getaway, and all you need to do to become eligible for the drawing is complete the survey in the front lobby at the Expo.

Located on scenic Highway 101, Bandon Dunes Golf Resort perches high above the Pacific Ocean and high atop any golfer’s bucket list. And thanks to the recent addition of direct flights from Denver to Southwest Oregon Regional Airport in North Bend (25 miles from Bandon), golfers no longer have to travel almost three hours from Eugene or four from Portland.

Satu Saturday, Feb. 8

Resort accommodations range from single rooms overlooking Bandon Dunes’ 18th hole to 4-bedroom Grove cottages tucked into the coastal evergreen forest. The Denver Golf Expo’s Bandon Dunes Golf Resort Getaway package includes a three-night stay for two in the Chrome Lodge, 6 rounds of links golf on any of Bandon’s five courses. The package has a retail value $3,000, but the experience is priceless. For more information, visit bandondunesgolf.com or call 888-3456008 or 541-347-4380. D

*You must complete the survey in the front lobby to be entered in the drawing. **All trips are good for Sunday arrival and Wednesday departure only, based on resort availability. Airfare and other incidental charges are not included. Expires 10/1/20.

Pro Tip

Want longer drives? A shorter driver shaft might be the key.

Consistent

If you’re struggling off of the tee, the length of your driver might be one factor that’s holding you back, By: Sabrina Naccarato DIVOT Contributing Writer

BRING YOUR SEASON INTO FOCUS Playing your best golf in 2020 starts right now. Bring your season into focus with the World Leader in Golf Improvement. Work with a GOLFTEC Certi ed Coach and our advanced training and tting systems during Training Camp, now through the end of February. This is the best time to work on your swing and get your clubs tted before the season is here!

When you’re shopping for cars, I doubt you walk right up to one and say “well, this looks pretty good, I’ll take it.” If you do, that’s an interesting tactic. But what’s more curious is that’s how a lot of people shop for golf clubs. I know a driver isn’t nearly as expensive as a car, but you’re still making a pretty decent investment when purchasing golf clubs. Since a lot of amateurs make the mistake of buying before testing anything out, they often end up with ill fit equipment that hinders their game. One of the biggest oversights we see? Driver shaft lengths.

Go Shorter for Longer?

We compare a lot of things to the pros, from their swings to what they have in their bags. And when we look at their drivers, we typically see one commonality, their driver shaft length. You might be surprised that most pros have an average driver shaft length of 44.25″, that’s at least an inch shorter than your standard off-the-rack driver shaft. You might be thinking “well wouldn’t a driver with a longer shaft go farther?” For most

Inconsistent

golfers, it’s the opposite.

Shorter & More Consistent

So there has to be a reason why these shorter drivers go farther, right? It all comes down to consistency. Looking at the two pictures one is from a driver with a 45.25″ shaft. There’s no consistent pattern, and that has a lot do with the shaft being a little too long for that particular golfer. And because of that, I can almost guarantee this golfer struggles with distance. When we put this golfer into a shorter shaft, to no surprise, his shot pattern became more consistent and centered. Hitting the center of the face not only will help control those shots that hardly ever find the fairway, but you’ll see your distance increase as well. Now, we’re not saying changing out your shaft will completely overhaul your long game, but it’ll for sure help. Between the length of the shaft and all the other different factors that make up a shaft’s composition, figuring out what you need on your own is nearly impossible. The only way to pinpoint what’s best for you is to try different shafts with the help of an expert fitter at GOLFTEC.

Course Feature

Los Cabos, Mexico (Nov. 13, 2019) – To commemorate the 2014 debut of Quivira Golf Club, the epic Jack Nicklaus-designed course etched across a dazzling site at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, Pueblo Bonito Golf & Spa Resorts has put together a special package for golf enthusiasts. Opened to acclaim on Dec. 4, 2014, the Jack Nicklaus Signature course at Quivira has been recognized as one of the finest resort venues in the hemisphere. It has been voted to Golf Digest’s elite roster of the “World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses” and is ranked No. 2 on Golfweek’s list of the “Top 50 Courses in the Caribbean and Mexico.” Created as an exclusive amenity for guests of Pueblo Bonito Golf & Spa Resorts and Quivira Los Cabos residents, the bold 18

risk-reward design, marked by sheer granite cliffs, massive windswept dunes and rolling desert foothills, features breathtaking views and dizzying drops from tee to fairway. In a sun-splashed destination celebrated for its unique ocean-desert-mountain ecosystem, Quivira boasts more oceanfront exposure than any other course in town. This 7,085yard, par-72 tour de force presents an unforgettable test from any set of tees and offers players the biggest “wow” factor in Cabo. “Our team worked with the canvas Mother Nature provided to create what we hope is one of the most spectacular courses in the world,” Nicklaus said when the course opened five years ago. “This property afforded us a rare opportunity because of its topographic diversity and natural environment.”

Completing the experience at Quivira Golf Club is a stylish, thatched-roof clubhouse that offers a large rectangular bar, a casual steakhouse and ample outdoor seating overlooking the sea. Adjacent to the clubhouse is a spacious double-ended driving range that parallels the ocean within earshot of the thudding surf. There’s also an elongated practice putting green and a short-game practice area.
