Schedule of Shows

Saturday, May 18, 2019; from Spring-Ford CC in Royersford, PA

Recorded Friday May 17th from 5 to 6pm – airs regular times Saturday May 18th

The local golf season is in full swing and you won’t find a much busier private club in the area than Spring-Ford CC in Royersford. Plenty of golf being played every day … plenty of activities and events throughout the week.

Our GolfTalk Live Happy Hour Party will be co-hosted by head golf professional Rich Steinmetz.

For many years, one of the top players in the Philadelphia Section PGA, Steinmetz also has stepped onto the national stage a few times – competing in major championships. With the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black on the schedule this week, his comments about a club pro competing in a major championship should be quite interesting.

In our monthly Putting Corner segment, Dave Hamilton of the Putting Arc will tell us how some of the pros have prepared to take on the demonic greens at Bethpage Black.

Looking ahead to the following week, another national golf event is on tap – for the business side of the industry. The annual International Network of Golf Spring Conference will take place in Sebring, Florida. Reinhard Haubner, the entertaining general manager of the Seven Sebring Raceway Hotel – which hosts the event – will be on hand to tell us what he has in store for the visiting business and media members.

Finally, we will spend some time with the officers and members from Spring-Ford CC, who share the excitement of the golf season that is just hitting high gear.
