National Golf Day Set for April

St Augustine, United States: WE ARE GOLF – a coalition of the game’s leading associations and industry partners – has announced that the 11th annual National Golf Day will be held on April 25 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.
National Golf Day celebrates the game’s nearly US$70 billion economy, nearly US$4 billion annual charitable impact and many environmental and fitness benefits.
Industry leaders will meet with Members of Congress, the Executive Branch and federal agencies to discuss golf’s 15,000-plus diverse businesses, two million jobs impacted, tax revenue creation and tourism value.
Returning for 2018, golf industry leaders will arrive on Monday, April 23 to participate in a community service initiative on the National Mall the morning of April 24.
The project will focus on beautification, preservation and helping the National Park Service with turf deferred maintenance.
“With one in 75 US jobs impacted by golf, the industry plays a significant role in stimulating our economy nationwide,” said Steve Mona, CEO of World Golf Foundation, administrator of WE ARE GOLF.
“Last year, a record 2.5 million people tried golf for the first time, further cementing why it is vital to share golf’s interests with our country’s lawmakers, showcasing the game’s many economic, charitable and fitness benefits.”
In April 2017, National Golf Day was the most successful to date with a record 175 Congressional meetings scheduled in one day. Globally, the #NGD17 Twitter campaign eclipsed 72 million impressions and reached 24.3 million accounts, exceeding 12 million users in a one-hour span. More than 60 organisations from within the golf industry participated in the week’s activities.
