Sign up for the 2017 National Golf Day service project
For more than 100 golf industry advocates, the 10th annual National Golf Day in Washington, D.C., on April 26, will begin a day early with a community service project to help beautify about 40 acres on the National Mall adjacent to the White House and national monuments. The five-hour project is expected to include aerifying, seeding, pruning and general beautification to an area that welcomes 24 million visitors a year and includes national landmarks such as the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. GCSAA and the We Are Golf coalition have come together in the nation’s capital each spring since 2007 to promote the benefits of the game, including economic impact and charitable giving.
