This Thursday, April 4th golf industry leaders will visit Tallahassee in honor of Florida Golf Day.  Among those attending will be South Florida PGA Executive Director, Geoff Lofstead and Section Member, Jim Butler.
Florida Golf Day, an advocacy day at the State Capitol in Tallahassee, will celebrate the golf economy in the Sunshine State. Industry leaders will meet with members of the House of Representatives and Senate to discuss golf’s economic and tourism impact, environmental stewardship, charity and the health benefits.
The game’s direct economic impact in Florida was $8.2 billion in 2013 (the year of the most recent economic report) and supports more than 132,000 jobs and $3.6 billion in annual wage income along with being home to more than 1,000 golf facilities, the most of any state.
