The game of golf also provides ample opportunities for charitable organizations and foundations to raise funds through golf tournaments. In 2011, $3.9 billion were raised in the US using golf as a vehicle. 12 million people attended the various events that raised the funds across the United States. $40 million has been awarded by the United States Golf Association (USGA) since 1920, for environmental and turf research to provide golf courses with information to reduce impacts to the environment.
