NATIONAL GOLF DAY

2014 National Golf Day

Wednesday, May 21

Washington, D.C.

Leaders of the U.S.golf industry have long recognized the need for the industry to speak with a strong and unified voice to elected officials on issues of common concern. Toward that end, leaders from the industry's major Allied Associations have determined that hosting an annual National Golf Day in Washington, D.C.affords an outstanding opportunity for the industry to reach out to Members of Congress in a coordinated and effective manner.

The seventh annual National Golf Day will take place on May 21, 2014.  The World Golf Foundation is coordinating the day's agenda which will include industry leaders meeting with Members of Congress and their staffs to carry the message that golf is more than a game - it is a majorU.S.industry, providing two million jobs and creating annual wage income of $55.6 billion. In total, the U.S. golf economy exceeds $68.8 billion, making golf larger than the spectator sports and performing arts industry. As a significant contributor to theU.S.economy, the continued health and growth of the golf industry has a direct bearing on jobs, economic development and tax revenues for thousands of communities across the country.

Golf's leaders will be at National Golf Day to communicate the message that the industry is united as never before in its efforts to increase its impact economically, improve its environmental stewardship and use its fundraising capacity to improve the lives of millions of Americans.
