MICHIGAN GOLF DAY AT THE CAPITOL

Allied golf associations join
forces to bring message to legislators

 

LANSING – “Let’s do lunch at the turn Michigan
Legislators!” The Michigan golf industry will share its message with each state
legislator on Thursday, June 4, by presenting the popular Michigan Golf Day at
the Capital event.

 

The Michigan Golf Course Owners Association, the Michigan
Golf Course Superintendents Association, the Michigan Section PGA, the Golf
Association of Michigan, the Greater Michigan Club Managers Associations and
the Michigan Turfgrass Foundation, which form the Michigan Golf Alliance, will
convene on the lawn of the state Capitol and visit with each legislator.

 

For over a decade golf course owners, operators and
superintendents have gathered each spring to voice a cooperative message. This
year the leaders of Michigan golf have created a dynamic day of activity to
promote the game and the golf business. David West, vice-president of Travel
Michigan, will present the opening session

 

The executive directors and members of the organizations in
the Michigan Golf Alliance will be on hand between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to
meet with media and guests and discuss the wide range of topics regarding the
golf industry, including and not limited to the Pure Michigan campaign’s effect
on business and the industry’s 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 Legislators and their staff on who we are and what our
industry brings to the State of Michigan,” Kate Moore, executive director of
the MGCOA said. “I can’t overstate the importance of this day in delivering the
message to our government leaders.”

 

The schedule will include Senate and House office visits, a
keynote speaker and “lunch on the turn” provided by Eagle Eye Golf Course. All
Legislators will be invited to lunch with their constituents.
