GolfWeek today explored the mission of We Are Golf and addressed the issues facing the industry. They interviewed Joe Steranka, CEO of The PGA of America, a founding member of the coalition.
Golf is a great game, played in beautiful settings and enjoyed at a leisurely pace. No wonder it’s hard to get the respect of some lawmakers and policymakers. In their eyes, we’re a pastime, not a business.
But that’s changing; I saw evidence of the progress when I was privileged to help represent small-business owners and the NGCOA on National Golf Day. It’s helping our cause that all of golf’s major associations – the PGA of America, GCSAA, CMAA and the NGCOA, along with manufacturers, suppliers and others – finally are speaking with one voice through the We Are Golf coalition.
Jim Singerling, CEO of the Club Managers Association of America, appeared on News Channel 8 in Washington, DC to tout the benefits of the golf industry in the United States.
Last week, Brian Finan, President of the Salute Military Golf Association and SSGT Charles Eggleston, U.S. Army, Retired, sat down with Dave Lucas of Newschannel 8's Capital Golf Weekly to talk about how the game of golf is helping some of our nation's heroes heal one swing at a time.
