Golf Show Season Produces Gaylord Golf Mecca Enthusiasm

By Greg Johnson

If the return of live golf shows from the pandemic and the first few shows of the year are any indication, the enthusiasm golf gained in the last few years hasn’t waned. More and more people are keenly aware of the Gaylord Golf Mecca’s collection of 17 golf courses, nine properties, anchor resorts and endless amenities, too.

Over the last two weekends, golfers have come out in large numbers to the West Michigan Golf Show in Grand Rapids and the Toledo Golf Show in Sylvania, Ohio.

Holy Toledo! Hundreds of people signed up to try and win the special golf show prize of a trip for four lucky golfers to the Mecca, and so many stopped by the Gaylord Golf Mecca booth to chat with us in Toledo this past weekend. They asked some great questions, too.

Some wanted to know if the Mecca can handle big groups of golfers. Some wanted to know if there are options for couples. Some wanted to know if they can find variety in the golf courses available. Some wanted to know if there were affordable options. Of course, the answers are yes, yes, yes and yes, especially in the Gaylord Golf Mecca.

With 17 course options21 lodging partners, resorts, excellent golf course conditions and amenities, big group fun, small group fun, couples’ getaways, course variety and affordable options are easy to promise. It’s what we do in the Mecca.

Many of the properties that are part of the Mecca had booths at the shows. The Treetops Resort and Garland Lodge & Golf Resort booths looked especially busy in Toledo. Some people told us they drove over 50 miles to visit the show. They are growing weary of winter and can’t wait to play golf again. We get it.

The largest Michigan show, and one of the largest in the country, the Michigan Golf Show at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, is slated for March 4-6. Many of the Mecca members will have booths there, too. Check them out. We know you can’t wait for golf.

If you can’t make it to an in-person show to book your package, all the Mecca properties have specials running on our website in conjunction with Michigan Golf Live’s Show on the Road virtual golf show presentations. Check them out here.
