Based on a 2012 study by SRI International, the state’s direct golf economic impact is approximately $2.7 billion per year, supporting more than 25,500 jobs and $796.8 million in annual wage income. Massachusetts is home to about 376 golf courses located across the state and nearly 70% are open for public play.
 
“Almost everyone has been impacted by our industry,” said Leigh Bader, a PGA golf professional at Pine Oaks Golf Course in South Easton, owner of Joe & Leigh’s Discount Golf Pro Shop and a board member of Golf 20/20. “Both locally and nationally, golf is a major industry that generates jobs, commerce, economic development, high-quality open space and tax revenues for local communities. Not to mention, it also provides good quality family time and fun.”
 
Following a continental breakfast and brief press conference, attendees will enjoy an interactive swing zone and teaching area staffed by New England PGA Professionals. In addition, House and Senate members will be invited to compete in a charity putting contest. 
"It's a great excuse to start thinking about warmer days ahead,” said Jesse Menachem, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Golf Association, which was one of nine organizations involved in this project. “We will be celebrating golf in Massachusetts and the incredible economic impact it has in the state.”
The economic impact study entitled The Massachusetts Golf Economy — Full Reportreported that golf generates roughly $74.3 million in charitable giving and continues to be the home of some notable golf equipment manufacturers that support the state's exports, such as The Acushnet Company (parent company of the Titleist brand of golf equipment and apparel) and Callaway Golf, among many others.
