Golfing with Dad for Father’s Day!

Golfing with Dad for Father’s Day!

Jun 16 2014

Father’s Day – time to celebrate dad and maybe take him out to play some golf. While the first Mother’s Day was celebrated in 1914, dads didn't get the same recognition until 1966, when President Lyndon Johnson declared that the third Sunday in June would be recognized as Father’s Day. While this was the first year that fathers were recognized nationally, dads were celebrated for many years before. The original idea for Father’s Day was conceived by Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington. While listening to a sermon about Mother’s Day, Dodd decided she wanted a special day to honor her own father, William Smart. Mr. Smart was a widowed Civil War veteran who was left to raise his six children one his own at their home in Washington. The first official Father’s Day celebration was held on June 17, 1910 by Spokane’s mayor. June was selected as the official month because it was Smart’s birth month. While BBQs, picnics, and spending time out at the pool are all popular activities for Father’s Day, the United States Open Championship, commonly known as the U.S. Open, considers golf to be the best tradition when it comes to the 3rd Sunday in June. In fact, the final round of the U.S. Open is played on Father’s Day! Since there is such a connection between Father’s Day and golf, giving dad a putting green right in his own backyard as a gift is a no-brainer. He can work on his hole-in-one all year round and teach the kids how to play.
