Hooked On Golf Blog

I received an interesting invitation to the Utah State Capitol to be a first hand witness to Utah Governor Gary Herbert’s “Golf Proclamation.”  I’m headed up there shortly.  Golf is apparently doing very well here in Utah, and the Gov is going to proclaim May as “Golf Month.”

A recent study found, “golf contributes more than $800 million to our (Utah) state economy, supports more than 9,600 jobs, and accounts for more than $11 million in annual charitable giving.”  Further, “there is not a state in the country that has a larger percentage of their golf courses that are open to the public.”

These are good things, and I’m sure the Governor will be telling us more later this morning.  I’m looking forward to being in attendance, and likely seeing many of the top people in the Utah golf industry, many of whom are my friends and business associates.

Following the proclamation there will be a round of golf played at one of my home courses, Bonneville Golf Club.  Maybe I’ll even get to play with the Governor.  I think I can take him.  Hope he brings some extra cash.
