N.Y. Economic Development Law Section 181-C
Legislative intent

The legislature recognizes the importance of the sport of golf as an economic engine in New York. As the sport of golf continues to become more popular, golf vacation experiences will grow commensurately as tourist destinations. A recent study by the National Golf Foundation found that in neighboring Pennsylvania, the golf industry generates 1.1 billion dollars in direct economic benefit and 2.3 billion dollars in direct and indirect benefits, making it one of the largest industries in Pennsylvania. Golf enthusiasts typically enjoy flexible incomes and spend at above average levels on golf vacations. New York state must act to capitalize on this visitor spending. As home to many premiere golf courses, as well as affordable courses, New York is in an excellent position to attract travelers seeking a unique golf experience. The state must take on the responsibility of making New York an attractive and user-friendly destination for all travelers seeking a golf experience. * NB There are 2 § 181-c’s
