The Economic Impact Study indicated that the golf industry in Massachusetts is robust, creating a total economic impact of $2.7 billion. Some key figures were in the areas of: Employment: 25,500 jobs providing $796.8 million in wage income

Tourism & Hospitality: $366.7 million fed into the state economy through golf-related tourism and hospitality

Charitable Giving: $74.3 million given back through golf-related nonprofit organizations, including the Francis Ouimet Scholarship Fund, Jimmy Fund Golf, The First Tee, among many others

Environmental Protection: 91% of the acreage on a golf course is green space that provides benefits to the surrounding ecosystem

In the spring of 2015, AMGO, in collaboration with Golf 20/20 will conduct a 'Massachusetts Golf Day' at the State House, where we will promote the study's findings to legislators and the general public.
