National Golf Day 2016

30dc011c-8844-4b02-a969-7787eca14201May 18, 2016 marked the ninth annual National Golf Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

This year’s event featured LPGA legend Nancy Lopez, 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III and Vice Captain Steve Stricker.

Golf industry leaders met with members of Congress, the Executive Branch and federal agencies to discuss the game’s nearly $70 billion economy, $4 billion annual charitable impact and many environmental and fitness benefits. Throughout the day, participants shared stories about the game’s nearly 15,000-plus diverse businesses (there more golf courses than McDonald’s in America), the two million jobs that are impacted by the industry, tax revenue creation, tourism and ecological value.
