Experts in the Game and Business of Golf
Established in 1969, the Alabama – NW Florida Section of the PGA of America has a breadth of history as experts in the game and business of golf. Previously known as the Dixie Section from 1969 to 2016, we are headquartered in the Birmingham suburb of Pelham, Alabama at Ballantrae Golf Club.
The Section currently has over 340 Members and 75 Associates dedicated to offering special events, junior golf programs, and other playing opportunities for communities in Alabama and the panhandle of Florida. Additionally, we also provide scholarship programs for children and grandchildren of PGA Members pursuing higher education goals. We exist to support the Members who are the driving force to growing the sport and business of golf while promoting initiatives that introduce and sustain the game in surrounding communities.
There are two primary pathways which lead to PGA Membership: The PGA Associate Program and the PGA Golf Management University Program.Learn More
