ORLANDO, Fla. (Feb. 11, 2014) — Golfweek's Golfest, presented by CenturyLink/Prism, is bringing its popular outdoor golf festival and demo day back to The Polo Fields at The Villages March 7-8.

"Golfweek's Golfest continues to draw thousands of golf fans to The Villages each year for an up-close look at all aspects of the game," said Director of Events Armand Cimaroli. "Thanks to the dedication and diversity of our many vendors, the event has grown and evolved into a unique experience for golfers of all ages and skill levels.
