LEMONT, Ill. – The Chicago District Golf Association (CDGA) is proud to announce its partnership with NFL great and Chicago’s own, Robbie Gould.
Gould, an avid golfer and CDGA member since 2007, will serve as Brand Ambassador for the CDGA, a local governing body for amateur golf and membership organization consisting of 106,000 individual golfers and 400 clubs.
“I’m excited to partner with the CDGA to connect with golf enthusiasts of all skill levels in the Greater Chicagoland area,” Gould said. “In my opinion, Chicago is the best golf city in America and the CDGA provides an amazing platform to promote and develop the game in the city I call home. Together, we are Better Through Golf!”
Gould, 40, played 18 seasons in the NFL, 11 with the Chicago Bears, and remains their all-time leading scorer. As a golfer, he holds a 2.7 Handicap Index®, competes on the Celebrity Tour and in the annual American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.
Gould and the CDGA will collaborate on an array of initiatives, including digital content, appearances at various CDGA events, custom merchandise and philanthropic endeavors. As golf continues to surge, CDGA Executive Director Robert Markionni believes the partnership with Gould will elevate the organization’s ability to carry out its mission of promoting golf and changing lives.
“To us, Robbie epitomizes what it means to be Better Through Golf,” said Markionni. “Whether competing as a talented player himself, using the game to give back, or engaging with other golfers, we have long admired Robbie’s affinity for golf. We look forward to joining forces with him in an effort to elevate the game we all love.”
