Community Service Project
In April 2018 for the second year in a row, golf industry leaders converged on the National Mall for a ½ day event focused on beautification and preservation of this area in conjunction with National Golf Day on Capitol Hill.
Working with Michael Stachowicz, Turf Management Specialist of the National Park Service, the group of 175 people focused on 18 different projects from the Capitol Building to the Washington Monument.
The four hours of “roll-up-your-sleeves” work saved the National Park Service nearly four months of labor. Activities included laying sod, raking, edging, overseeding, aerating, brushing walkways and sprucing up gravel pathways.
“Working to improve the grounds in our nation’s capital is a privilege,” says Rhett Evans, CEO of the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America. “Our team has this day marked as an enjoyable and meaningful event to help kick off National Golf Day.”
The golf industry looks forward to this exciting time in D.C. each year, enhancing the beauty of the National Mall for the surrounding community and all visitors to the D.C. area.
Stay tuned to join as a volunteer for the 2019 event!
