The latest local effort in the field of golf and travel shows, aimed at the general public, concludes a two-day run today at the Convention Center. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The event, sponsored and conducted by the Chesapeake Golf Association, features about 90 exhibitors displaying some of the latest offerings in equipment and apparel, along with golf-related real estate and travel offerings.

In the past, shows sponsored by other organizations were held here during the fall, but this is the only program scheduled for this season. Several shows are listed for next spring.

This is the latest venture of the CGA, a membership group formed this year. For an annual fee, members receive a variety of services, including discounted fees at some area public facilities, and a monthly (10 issues a year) newsletter.

Time for fair play

The Baltimore Municipal Golf Corp. has developed a "fair play" program, addressing what it considers three of its most controversial areas: groups vs. general play; pace of play, and the weekend/holiday reservation system.

The starting times for all group events have been changed to provide a better balance between group and general play; new procedures will be implemented to speed up play, based on the fact pace is dependent on the pre-noon speed of rounds; and a new system for acquiring prime tee times on weekends and holidays will be implemented by spring.

The BMGC's lottery to allocate available outing dates for 1993 will be held at the Cromwell Bridge Holiday Inn Jan. 9, 1993, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Due to changes from previous years, group leaders are asked to get in touch with a corporation golf professional in person to obtain a pre-registration packet. All groups must be pre-registered by Dec. 21.

Awards

The American Junior Golf Association has named Tiger Woods of Cypress, Calif., and Kellee Booth of Coto de Caza, Calif., as its respective boys and girls Players of the Year. Included on the boys third team is Justin Klein of Phoenix and

Hunt Valley GC, a freshman at Duke University.
