The game of golf is much more than a fun day on the course; it has positive economic, community, and societal benefits. Through a branded We Are Golf platform, Buffalo.Agency delivered global buzz for National Golf Day.
WE ARE GOLF
Communicating golf's growth and its many economic, charitable and environmental contributions to our country's lawmakers.
Turnkey a multiplatform communications and branding program for We Are Golf's National Golf Day that engaged the broadest possible audience and delivered messages about golf’s human benefits to society.
For National Golf Day’s 10th anniversary, Buffalo.Agency crafted and distributed a social media toolkit to industry leaders, golf enthusiasts and influencers, Congressional members and non-endemic media. This included suggested social media posts about golf’s economic impact, affordability, accessibility, charitable impact and environmental sustainability. Additionally, our team executed the second annual National Golf Day Launch Party at the Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center on April 25 with more than 250 confirmed attendees. Finally, Buffalo coordinated on-site media interviews with the PGA TOUR’s Billy Hurley III.
