The Georgia PGA is one of the 41 Sections of The PGA of America. Its membership includes over 890 PGA Professionals working at over 260 golf courses, clubs, and ranges throughout the state. Additionally, more than 35 Georgia PGA members compete on one of the PGA Tours. In keeping with the fundamental objectives laid down by its founders, one of the Georgia PGA’s primary goals is promoting the game of golf through clinics, junior and minority golf programs, consumer programs, and print and television media.
Although the Georgia PGA spends a great deal of time promoting the game of golf to the general public, its primary focus is its membership. A number of committees have been established – from Education, to Employment, to Tournaments – to ensure as many members as possible have a voice in the organization.
The Georgia PGA membership also enjoys a very successful tournament season, which typically runs from late March to early December. The 30-plus-event season usually begins with the Pro-Pro Scramble and commences with the Pro-Pro Championship. In addition to section events, the Georgia PGA tournament staff also conducts numerous Tour event qualifiers, PGA TOUR qualifying tournaments, and Pro-Ams.
PGA REACH GEORGIA is the 501(c)(3) charitable foundation and arm of the Georgia Section of the PGA of America (“Georgia PGA”). PGA REACH GEORGIA’s mission is to positively impact the lives of youth, military, and diverse populations by enabling access to the Georgia PGA, Georgia PGA Professionals, and the game of golf in Georgia.
