Thank you Sean Arey for hosting today’s OPGA Senior Pro Am at Trysting Tree GC. The golf course was dry as a bone and the greens were rolling pure and true. Despite a couple of showers periodically throughout the day, we were quite fortunate to have a mostly dry day. Thank you to all of the players for your support of the OPGA. Here are the results from today.
In 2013, the size of Oregon’s direct golf economy was approximately $1.3 billion. This is comparable to revenues generated by other key industries in the state, such as paper manufacturing ($3.9), software publishing ($1.5 billion) and greenhouses/nurseries ($0.8 billion).
Golf brings visitors to the state, spurs new residential construction, generates retail sales and creates demand for a myriad of goods and services. In 2013, Oregon’s golf industry generated a total economic impact of $2.0 billion, supporting over 21,000 jobs with $576.4 million of wage income.

Thank you to Jeff Simonds and his entire professional team for their hospitality over the past three days and to all of the other staff members @bandondunesgolf that do their part in making sure that our group has an awesome time while we are there. We are so fortunate to have Bandon Dunes Resort in our Pro Am rotation. The weather was again perfect with gusts up to 25mph, but that did not seem to stop many players from grinding it out and posting a number. Here are the results from today’s round at Pacific Dunes.
