by Government Affairs Team | Feb 10, 2020

Registration for 2020 National Golf Day is now open through March 13. Join GCSAA and other golf-affiliated associations working in partnership with WE ARE GOLF to advance, protect and advocate for the industry during the 13th annual National Golf Day. On May 5-6, 2020, superintendents, course owners, golfers and fans will gather in Washington, D.C., to perform community service, meet with Members of Congress and celebrate the game.

National Golf Day provides an opportunity for members of the golf industry to meet with lawmakers in the nation’s capital to discuss golf’s impact on the economy, the environment and jobs. In addition to a $84.1 billion economy, nearly $4 billion annual charitable impact and more than 15,000 businesses, golf is responsible for many ecological and fitness benefits. Here are a few of the National Golf Day events.:
