Golf tournament brings tourism dollars to Wichita
Wichita , Kan. Its an annual tradition as thousands make their way to Crestview Country Club this weekend for the Air Capital Classic Golf Tournament.
With so many people coming in, the economic impact is felt throughout Wichita.
It brings $4.6 million, just the economic impact to the community. Its more than a golf tournament and its more than an event the community takes pride in, financially its very good for the city, said Roy Turner.
Thats real rewarding to know that it has a broader reach than just the people that come out and enjoy the day, that its doing something to support the community, said Angie Elliott.
But its not just businesses getting the benefit of seeing the number of customers go up, theres also more people investing in the event.
