WE ARE GOLF – a coalition of the game’s leading associations and industry partners –  recently announced the ninth annual National Golf Day will be held Wednesday, May 18 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

National Golf Day celebrates the game’s nearly $70 billion economy, $4 billion annual charitable impact and many environmental and fitness benefits. Industry leaders will meet with Members of Congress, the executive branch and federal agencies on Capitol Hill to discuss golf’s 15,000-plus diverse businesses, two million employees, tax revenue creation and tourism value.

In April 2015, National Golf Day was the most successful to date with over 120 scheduled Congressional meetings in one day. Globally, the #NGD15 Twitter campaign eclipsed 37 million impressions and reached 19.8 million accounts, including 3.3 million users in a one-hour span.
