ATLANTA -- On Monday, Canongate Golf rolled out an initiative to get Georgians to go outside and play -- preferably on the links -- this summer.
This "Play" platform encourages metro Atlanta residents to spend some time outdoors, now that summer break is in full swing. The movement centers around an Environmental Protection Agency statistic, which says that Americans spend about 90 percent of their time indoors.
"At Canongate, we believe that golf can truly have a positive impact on the quality of life and have seen its effects firsthand through our members," Canongate Golf president and CEO Joe Guerra said in a statement. "We have challenged ourselves to create an array of programs and packages that make the sport more accessible and enjoyable for the entire family."
To celebrate the Play program, Canongate is giving locals a chance to win a free one-year membership to any of its 23 clubs throughout the metro area.
