The Chicago Golf Show®, established in 1984, was the first consumer golf show in the United States.

Over the past 35 years, the Chicago Golf Show® has grown from just a few tabletop exhibits in a hotel ballroom to one of the largest golf shows in the Midwest with over 180 vendors, a 4500 square foot demo area and special appearances from top PGA professionals. In 2013, the Chicago Golf Show® welcomed more than 19,000 attendees to the show—marking the highest attendance in the show’s 30 year history.
