Golf courses have a positive impact on the economy. Every year, it is estimated that more than 25 million people spend 2.5 billion hours outside playing one of the nation’s 17,000-plus golf courses. The impact of golf facilities is $20 billion annually.
I’m proud to be associated with golf.
At 5am – 7am we had thunderstorms, a tornado, and rain totaling 1/2 inch and and hour and a half later we were out playing golf. Gotta love Florida.
