The 2024 Michigan Golf Show in Novi, Michigan had something for everyone.  We enjoyed meeting avid golfers and enthusiasts from across the state. Also, we met a few visitors to the mitten state, too! Held at the Suburban Collection Showplace, this annual event showcases the latest innovations in golf equipment, apparel, and technology for every aspect of the golf game.  We had the opportunity to explore a wide array of exhibitors. These ranged from renowned golf club manufacturers to travel destinations and resorts. We’re sharing some great deals and intriguing products. Additionally, we found several options to purchase used equipment available. For those who want to keep costs down, this is a popular choice.

Perhaps the most interesting part of attending the Golf Show was the opportunity to meet entrepreneurs.  So many great innovations have an origin story linked to a course or golf trip – and we love to hear the tales.  Having reviewed over 100 Michigan golf courses, we can understand if the relaxing landscape inspires creativity.  Just like other seasoned golfers and newcomers, we found valuable insights on products and golf packages. With its vibrant atmosphere and comprehensive offerings, the 2024 Michigan Golf Show proved to be a value destination for all things golf. We’re sharing a few booths that stood out:

Golf Products of Interest

T.A.G. Golf Co

T.A.G. Golf Co.

Golf towels with a magnet caught our attention and we wanted to know all about their T.A.G story. Dan and Pat shared their “Take A Gimmie” story and showed us the magnet Towel. It’s great for Picking It Up with a club. (Get it? Take A Gimmie = PICK IT UP.) There’s even a smaller, handy towel with the same magnet for cleaning golf balls when it’s time to putt. But wait – there’s more! They have a belt clip that pairs with their towel’s magnet to keep the small towel conveniently at your hip. Needless to say, we wanted to take these for a round on the course. We’ll go into more detail in our upcoming review of these innovative magnetic golf towels. You can also expect a review of T.A.G. Golf Co’s Birdie Wipes.

Golf Cannon

Golf Cannon

We had a blast learning about this product! Golf Cannon by Golf Tournament Solutions specializes in high-performance golf ball launchers for charity golf events. Their patented cannons have a Progressive Parabolic Curved Barrel employing the Fibonacci Sequence. This special barrel makes the cannons much more accurate and safer than straight-barrel cannons. Constructed of metal, it does not have the potential to shatter as a PVC or plastic air cannon. Additionally, the GTS Golf Cannon is designed to be quiet and have very little recoil, making them a great choice for golfers of any age.

Mostly, the Golf Cannon is a great way for tournaments, events or charity events to raise extra donations. Participants donate to use the golf cannon on a preselected hole during the event. The team at Golf Cannon can also provide guidance on how to maximize your fundraising. This fun, safe, and exciting way to have a long drive contest  will be the talk of the event.
