WE ARE GOLF

January 20th, 2015

A coalition of US golf’s leading associations and industry partners has announced that the eighth annual National Golf Day will be held on April 15 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. Golf’s leaders will meet with Members of Congress, the Executive Branch and federal agencies to discuss golf’s nearly $70 billion economy, $4 billion annual charitable impact and many environmental and fitness benefits.

European Golf carried out a similar exercise at the European Parliament in 2013. It’s time that this was done again.
