About Golfer's Day
When is Golfer's Day? This holiday is always observed on April 10
Some avid golfers might suggest any and every day is Golfer’s Day. But this April 10 holiday is officially dedicated to golfers. 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, also called “Golf 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 weekday, 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.
How to Participate in Golfer's Day

“If you think golf is relaxing, you’re not playing it right.” – – Bob Hope
History and Origin of Golfer's Day
Our extensive research on this day came up with very little substantial information about the history or origin of this day.
On April 10, 1916, the Professional Golf Association (PGA) was founded on this day, and the first professional golf tournament was held.
We know why this day was created. But, we do not know who created it 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.
