Golfer's Day (Golf Day)
Date When Celebrated : Always on April 10
Some avid golfers might suggest any and every day is Golfer's Day. But on this day, it's official. The only question is, does this day honor the golfer, the sport, or the weather? Well, it's a little of each. Golfer's Day is an opportunity to be thankful that someone invented this addicting, yet relaxing hobby.
Also referred to as "Golf Day", there is only one proper way to enjoy this day. And, that's out on the golf course.
When Golfer's Day falls on a week day, it is even more special. That means you now have an excuse to take a day off of work and go play a round ...or two. Regardless of your score today, you know that even a bad day on the greens, is better than a good day at work.
Origin of Golfer's Day
Our extensive research on this day came up with very little substantial information around the history or origin of this day.
On April 10, 1916, the Professional Golf Associaton (PGA) was founded on this day, and first professional golf tournament was held.
We know why this day was created. But, we do not know who created or when it began (obviously on or after April 10, 1916).
A reader pointed out that the tubular steel golf club shaft was approved for championship play on this day in 1924.
