Here's What's In Store For You...
National Golf Day is the year’s pinnacle event for WE ARE GOLF.
Going on its 12th year, it will be held on May 1, 2019, on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. We hope you can join us in supporting the golf industry in 2019!
WHAT IS NATIONAL GOLF DAY
National Golf Day celebrates the game’s $84.1 billion economy, nearly $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 diverse businesses, two million jobs impacted, tax revenue, and tourism value.
COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECT
For the third annual Community Service Project, we will focus on the beautification and preservation between the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. Services will include sodding, planting, aerating, seeding, mowing, and mulching.
