Allied golf associations join forces to bring message to legislators
MICHIGAN GOLF DAY AT THE CAPITOL
Michigan Golf Course Owners Association, Michigan Golf Course Superintendents Association, Michigan Section PGA, the Golf Association of Michigan, Michigan Club Managers Associations and the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation will convene at the Capitol and visit every Legislator on June 22nd. The Capitol lawn will be the venue for this unprecedented event.
Each year for the past decade golf course owners, operators and superintendents have gathered in the spring to bring a cooperative message to the legislature. This year, the newly established Michigan Golf Alliance, comprised of the leaders of Michigan golf industry associations, have come together to create a dynamic event to promote the game and the business of golf. Wednesday, June 22 will be Michigan Golf Day at the Capitol. Governor Snyder’s Chief of Staff Dennis Muchmore will be the featured speaker.
The executive directors and members of these organizations will be on hand between 11:30 and 1:30 to meet with press and speak on everything from how the Pure Michigan campaign is affecting business to new sustainability efforts that have a positive effect on the environment.
The Michigan Golf Alliance has put together a great program to facilitate golf industry representatives in introducing themselves and informing the new Legislators and their staff of who we are and what our industry brings to the State of Michigan. “I can't overstate the importance of this day in delivering the message to our government leaders,” said Kate Moore, Executive Director of the MGCOA. The schedule will include Senate and House office visits, a keynote speaker, “lunch on the turn” provided by Eagle Eye Golf Course. All Legislators will be invited to lunch with their constituents.
