BellinghamGolfer encourages you to enter the National Golf Foundation's American Golf Census sweepstakes, not only because by doing so you'll be supporting the game by giving the NGF valuable information (don't worry, they ask only for your name, address, email address and age. Takes about two minutes) to present to policymakers, but also because there's over $100,000 worth of prizes up for grabs, including golf vacations to Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Scotland and Ireland; instruction at the ANNIKA Academy in Orlando; a tournament weekend in Augusta, GA; and thousands of prizes from Callaway, Nike and TaylorMade. You have until the end of Election Day (November 2nd) to enter
