National Golf Day is a major charitable event, sponsored annually since 1952 by the PGA.
On National Golf Day, all of the over 4,300 professional members the PGA are encouraged to play golf with contributors. The entry fees of contributors goes towards a wide range of charitable causes. Each year, a top ranked golfer is made chairman of this event. This is a truly admirable and worthy event. Many golf course hold their own events, with the proceeds going to charities.

Calendar companies, and Ecard websites have this day documented on October 4th.
Origin of National Golf Day:
The Professional Golfer's Association (PGA) created and sponsors National Golf Day. It has been held every year since its inception in 1952. The first event was held at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club, in Lemont, Il. The first event raised $80,000 for charities.
Did You Know? At the very first National Golf Day event, celebrities Bob Hope, Dean Martin, and Jerry Lewis were in attendance.
We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation. However, the contributions of this day to charitable groups, would make this day worthy of national recognition.
