Annual event will be held at CenturyLink Field Event Center.
The 2018 Seattle Golf and Travel Show is set for the weekend of March 3-4 at the CenturyLink Field Event Center.
The show, in its 20th year, claims to be the largest consumer golf expo on the West Coast.
The adult admission price of $14 includes two rounds of golf, with one selection from three courses west of the Cascades (Eagles Pride, High Cedars, Gallery) and the other from either Sun Country outside Cle Elum or Desert Aire in Grant County. Ticket-purchasers also will receive a year’s subscription to Golf Digest.
Varsity Communications, Inc., producers of Cascade Golfer magazine, purchased the rights to the golf show last summer from a Seattle company doing business as Cascadia Events.
