Facilities Asked to Participate in WE ARE GOLF
Coalition to make first public appearance at National Golf Day
The WE ARE GOLF coalition, launched at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando and the Golf Industry Show in San Diego, is looking for partners from all aspects of the industry with the common goal of enhancing golf’s stature and image at the federal, state and local levels of government. The face of this campaign is the stories of the dedicated men and women who directly and indirectly benefit from the greatest sport in the world.
WE ARE GOLF will make its first public appearance April 28 at National Golf Day in Washington, D.C. It builds on the momentum of the past two National Golf Day events and collaborative efforts in executing numerous state economic impact studies. The 2 million jobs generated by the multi-billion-dollar industry, and the industry’s vast economic impact, are at the core of the coalition’s message.
For WE ARE GOLF to be successful, members must become engaged. Every individual at a golf facility has the opportunity to work with their elected leaders, be it on the local, state or national level, to advocate for the industry and the game. Grassroots efforts can make a difference, and as the WE ARE GOLF campaign develops, resources will be provided for individuals to join the effort.
To create these resources and to execute programs, financial resources are needed. Founding partners of the coalition, CMAA, GCSAA, NGCOA, and PGA of America, are in the process of reaching out to every corner of the industry to seek this support. Individuals at each facility are ask to work together to secure a $1,000 donation from their facility to support the campaign.
While the financial support of golf facilities is important, it must be a byproduct of collaboration. Please visit www.WeAreGolf.org to register today.
