The PGA of America has created various initiatives to give back to communities through our Championship Community Relations Programs established in cities that host the PGA Championship, Ryder Cup, Senior PGA Championship and the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Charitable organizations selected to participate provide community services in the areas of education, health, wellness and hunger primarily for our youth. These programs provide means for local charities to attend the Championships as well as generate funds to support their programs.
The PGA of America is committed to diversity at all levels, with a specific interest in creating opportunities for under-represented individuals to participate in the game of golf. With support from PGA Professionals, these programs not only produce outstanding golfers, they also help young folks prepare for life. Programs such as The First Tee and The Louisville Urban Youth Golf Program are examples of how community organizations and The PGA partner to enhance lives of minority youth.
At PGA of America Headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., the staff supports local Palm Beach County charities through a united effort. The recent 100 percent participation in an annual United Way Campaign, the Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run which supports the American Red Cross South Florida Region and an adopt a child for the annual holiday gift giving program which supports Friends of Abused Children, Inc., are just a few of the programs the staff is involved with throughout the year.
