A sparkling driver. A brand-new Black Butte Ranch logo hat. A state-of-the-art wedge. A crisp golf shirt and pants. A fresh golf season has a way of lengthening a golf equipment and apparel wish list.

Of course, at some point it’s time to start crossing items off that list, and this weekend could be perfect. Highlighted by the Big Meadow Demo Day & Tent Sale, Black Butte Ranch is hosting its annual Memorial Day Extravaganza on Saturday, May 27, and Sunday, May 28.

Deep discounts on apparel and equipment can be had all weekend long, and golfers will have the opportunity to try the latest and greatest equipment from most every major manufacturer.

Start with the demo day, which will be held on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bridgestone Golf, Callaway, Cobra, Ping, TaylorMade, and Titleist will all be stationed on the driving range of Big Meadow on Saturday, May 27, for any and all to come and test out each company’s newest creations.

In addition, club-fitters can identify the right length for your woods, the right lie for your irons, and the right shafts for your whole set. And Black Butte Ranch will be offering special pricing on new equipment for demo day.

“Demo day is always a popular day around here, and it is easy to see why,” said Jeff Fought, Black Butte Ranch’s director of golf. “If a golfer is in the market for new equipment, it offers an opportunity to do a side-by-side comparison. You get to hit it, feel it, and see the ball actually fly into the air. If he or she is not serious about buying yet, well, it’s just a lot of fun to try out all the newest equipment.”

Finding an exceptional bargain can be fun, too. The Tent Sale will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, and plenty of good deals will be there for the taking. Much of the clubs, balls, and Black Butte Ranch logo apparel that has been stocking the golf shop shelves at Big Meadow and Glaze Meadow will be offered at well below retail.

Some of the highlights:

  • As much as 50 percent off select sizes of Peter Millar shirts and sweaters.
  • Select sizes of Bette & Court and Sport Haley ladies golf apparel marked down 50 percent.
  • A wide variety of Black Butte Ranch logo wear marked down from 30 percent to 60 percent.
  • 25 percent off golf bags.
  • 25 percent off golf shoes.
  • New arrivals are marked down as much as 20 percent off.

The atmosphere at the Memorial Day Extravaganza is worth the trip out to the Ranch, too.

“We always love to tee of the summer season with this Memorial Day event,” Fought said. “The weather has turned and it’s usually great to see all the golfers out here again. It makes for a nice start to the peak golf season.”

The demo day will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. The tent sale will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Everyone is welcome and admission is free.
