National Golf Day Announced for April 26

Apr 18, 2017

Are you ready? National Golf Day 2017 is Wednesday, April 26 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

National Golf Day celebrates its 10th anniversary through the game’s nearly $70 billion economy, $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 Capitol Hill to discuss golf’s 15,000-plus diverse businesses, two million employees, tax revenue creation and tourism value.

New for 2017, golf industry leaders will arrive Tuesday, April 25 to participate in a community service initiative on the National Mall.

In May 2016, National Golf Day was the most successful to date with over 120 scheduled Congressional meetings in one day. Globally, the #NGD16 Twitter campaign eclipsed 52 million impressions and reached 17.7 million accounts, including 4.4 million users in a one-hour span.
