National Golf Day Schedule Announced

16 Jan, 2018

National Golf Day 2018 will be held on Wednesday, April 25 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

National Golf Day celebrates the game’s nearly $70 billion economy (updated data available in April 2018), 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-plus diverse businesses, two million jobs impacted, tax revenue creation and tourism value.

Golf industry leaders will arrive Monday, April 23 to participate in a community service initiative on the National Mall the morning of Tuesday, April 24. The project will focus on beautification, preservation and helping the National Park Service with turf deferred maintenance. More details will be available soon.

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.
