WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 27, 2019) — 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 on May 1 to discuss golf’s 15,000 diverse businesses, two million jobs impacted, tax revenue creation and tourism value.
“Golf plays a substantial role in stimulating the American economy, as the industry impacts $58.7 billion in annual wage income,” says Steve Mona, CEO of World Golf Foundation, administrator of WE ARE GOLF.
“In addition to the nearly 24 million U.S. golfers, a record-high 14.9 million are ‘very interested’ in playing the game, further cementing why it is vital to advocate on behalf of golf’s interests with our country’s lawmakers.”
