Travelers Championship Golf in CT... for Everyone
CT Gov. M. Jodi Rell is a golfer. A recreational golfer who really works on her game, but that's not the only reason she proclaimed yesterday, Golf Industry Day in Connecticut. A recent study concluded that "Connecticut's golf industry generated a total economic impact of $1.1 billion, supporting nearly 11,570 jobs with $336.6 million of wage income".
What's very clear is that golf is good for CT, and The Traveler's Championship's Fan & Family Day yesterday was an event... actually a series of events... that succeeded in bringing multiple golf experiences to golfers and golf fans of all ages.
In addition to the pro's practice rounds throughout the day, there was a Play Golf America Day, presented by the Connecticut Section PGA It included
Free lessons with local professionals, equipment demos the chance for everyone to try out TPC River Highland's amazing practice area There was also a fun (and funny) Celebrity Charity Shootout Contest for charity. Where some... interesting... swings were displayed by the local celebs who participated.
More to come.
