We also provide networking opportunities with other golf professionals in Ohio with our Discussion Board (see tab above).
And finally, one key example of our policy work was the OGCOA involvement in getting golf courses open and keeping them open throughout the pandemic. Imagine where we would be today if golf courses were kept closed as a non-essential business for as long as restaurants and other businesses were during the pandemic. Being open enabled us to not only avoid this huge loss of revenue, but also incur tremendous growth in rounds of golf played and revenue. Again, the OGCOA was very active in working with our state and local officials to make this happen for golf courses, teaching professionals, and everybody else who makes a living in the golf industry.
