Since its founding in 1916, The PGA of America has maintained a twofold mission: to establish and elevate the standards of the profession and to grow interest and participation in the game of golf. The PGA enables its professionals to maximize their performance in their respective career paths and showcases them as experts in the game and in the multi-billion dollar golf industry. By creating and delivering world-class championships and innovative programs, the PGA of America elevates the public’s interest in the game, the desire to play more golf and ensures accessibility to the game for everyone, everywhere. The PGA brand represents the very best in golf.
The Alabama – NW Florida PGA is one of 41 Sections that make up the PGA of America. Our Section is headquartered in the Birmingham suburb of Pelham, Alabama at Ballantrae Golf Club. Established in 1969, the Section consists of over 400 Members and Associates in the state of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. The Section exists to support its Members who are the driving force to growing the sport and business of golf.
In addition to managing the day-to-day operational affairs, the Section also houses the Alabama – NW Florida Golf Foundation, the 501(c)(3) charitable arm of the Section. Our foundation exists to positively impact the lives of those who reside in the state of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. We accomplish our mission by offering programs and initiatives focused on increasing golf participation for youth, military and diverse populations.
The Alabama – NW Florida Golf Foundation is the 501(c)(3) charitable arm of the PGA Section. Established in 2003, the foundation has three (3) main areas of focus for its programming and outreach. These include engaging youth, military and diverse populations within the PGA Section. Each area of focus contains a diverse slate of programming and initiatives to help foster participation for both the sport and business of golf.
The mission of the Alabama – NW Florida Golf Foundation is to positively impact the lives of those who reside in the state of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle through community outreaches, programs and initiatives the game of golf provides.
We will accomplish this mission by supporting programs that grow the game while breaking down the barriers that discourage participation in the sport and business of golf. By enabling access to PGA Professionals within the Section and golf itself the foundation will be able to better serve its mission and expand its reach in surrounding communities. Learn More 〉
