Today is National Golf Day, a day when golf’s leaders will meet with members of Congress, the Executive Branch and federal agencies to discuss golf’s nearly $70 million economy, $4 billion annual charitable impact and the many environmental and fitness benefits. Throughout the day, participants will share stories about the game’s nearly 15,000 diverse businesses, two million employees, tax revenue creation, tourism and ecological value.
The day was created by WE ARE GOLF, a coalition of the game’s leading associations and industry partners. Last year’s National Golf Day was the most successful to date with over 120 scheduled Congressional meetings in one day. Globally, the #NGD14 Twitter campaign eclipsed 16 million impressions and reached 7.4 million accounts, including 787,000 users in a one-hour span.
ClubCorp’s own Cathy Harbin, Vice President, Public Golf, ClubCorp Academy and Programming, currently is featured on the WE ARE GOLF website in their “Five Questions” section where she talks about ClubCorp as a leader in growing the game of golf and what the company is doing to bring the next generation and women golfers into the clubs.
