“The Grand Fitting and Golf Expo will be a splendid kick-off for our Shepherd’s Rock grand opening and we are delighted John Daly will be on hand for the event,” says Mike Jones, director of golf and recreation. “We want folks to come out and enjoy all we offer at the Nemacolin Golf Academy, and discover firsthand why we’re one of the premier golf facilities in the U.S.”

A commitment to growing the game also abounds, with numerous junior and family golf options.

“Based on the number of brand representatives and schedule of events, the Grand Fitting and Golf Expo promises to be one of the largest and most entertaining fitting and demo day experiences that is open to the public,” adds Johnson. “We are thrilled to host an event that showcases the many world-class components of the Nemacolin Golf Academy – from its highly-regarded instruction programs to its on-site club fitting center and advanced technological game-improvement features.”
