An assemblage of great golf minds, entertainers, and players flock to Tampa Bay Downs’ golf-practice facility during Golfest. On Saturday, a Celebrity Golf Skills Challenge pairs up celebs from beyond the world of golf, including Tampa Bay Ray David Price, duos from the Lightning and Buchaneers, and the drummers of Iron Maiden and Megadeth. On Sunday, world-renowned trick-shot artist Chuck The Hit Man Hiter will be on hand to redefine the cup’s geometric limits. Students of the game can also listen intently as a 2012 North Florida PGA teacher of the year Matt Mitchell discusses the game’s finer points, or watch in awe as long-drive champion and trick-shot artist Mike Ziegler launches balls into the stratosphere. Visitors also can engage in the event’s surrounding activities, such as free lessons from PGA instructors, chances to try out the latest new products and golf clubs, a million-dollar hole-in-one challenge, and a complimentary drawing to win more than $1,000 of donated prizes.
Although not open for practice sessions during Golfest, Tampa Bay Downs’ 22-acre golf-practice facility fosters swing-honing practice with 45 bermuda-grass hitting stalls along with two chipping areas and one putting green. The range is also open for late-night sessions.<p>
