The nation’s oldest consumer golf show, The Chicago Golf Show returns to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont February 21-23.

“The Encompass Championship is excited to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2014 Chicago Golf Show,” said Encompass Championship tournament director Mike Galeski. “The Show is a great opportunity for the tournament to connect with core golfers who love the game and who follow the Champions Tour players who will be competing in our tournament. We’re also pleased to provide show attendees with a special half-price ticket offer so they can come out and enjoy some of the legends of the game, including our defending champion Craig Stadler, Fred Couples, Kenny Perry and many others.”
