The Papago Music Festival kicks off Saturday, October 8 (5-8 p.m.) at Papago Golf Club, featuring three tribute bands: Tennessee Whiskey (Chris Stapleton), Candle in the Wind (Elton John) and One Of These Nights (The Eagles). Proceeds benefit the Arizona Alliance for Golf, a coalition of individuals and organizations dedicated to the game of golf, the diverse industries it supports and the people who love and depend on it.
Arizona Alliance for Golf (AAG) unifies local allied associations, non-profits, private industry and consumers to speak with one voice for the purpose of protecting Arizona’s golf industry by educating the broader community, policymakers and governmental agencies about issues shaping the future of golf in Arizona.
Groups involved include local affiliates of national golf industry associations covering the golf business from agronomy to hospitality. They represent millions of Arizonans who depend on the game of golf and the state’s unique travel and lifestyle attractions that draw millions to the Grand Canyon State each year.
Arizona Alliance for Golf led the most comprehensive, up-to-date economic research study, revealing the many positive impacts the game has on Arizona’s economy. With a unified voice, AAG now leads the effort to protect golf for future generations by educating Arizonans about the game’s many benefits.
