On June 4, executive directors and members of the Michigan Golf Alliance will celebrate Michigan Golf Day on the front lawn of the State Capitol. Members will set up shop on the front lawn of the Capitol to impress upon state legislators the importance of golf to Michigan’s economy and environment.
The Michigan Golf Alliance includes 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
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.
