ENGAGING YOUTH

Engaging the next generation of golfers is just as critical to our Section as it is to young people. Participation in not only golf, but also other sports is associated with a wide range of benefits - physical, emotional and cognitive to list just a few. Golf can provide a safe, fun activity for children, while simultaneously teaching them discipline, teamwork and other important life lessons. These benefits can last well in to adulthood and can also help to develop an appreciation of the game which can create a lifelong interest in golf. The Alabama-NW Florida PGA and our members work hard to deliver exciting and relevant programs to attract new golfers—whether by assisting with program registration fees or access to golf equipment, and by developing new formats to make the game more enticing to beginners.

ENGAGING MILITARY & VETERAN COMMUNITIES

According to recent statistics published by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs: PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) affects 31% of Vietnam War veterans, 10% of Gulf War Veterans and 11% of veterans of the war in Afghanistan. There are 3.5 million veterans today living with a service-connected disability. There are currently over 500,000 veterans living in the state of Alabama and more than 800,000 veterans residing in the state of Florida. Additionally, within our Section, there are over 20 Veterans Affairs (VA) locations and hospitals that exist to better the lives of veterans who have suffered for wartime injuries and / or psychological trauma.

The Alabama-NW Florida PGA and our PGA Professionals work together with local Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospitals and military installations to implement this program. Veterans that are referred to the PGA HOPE program attend a one-day introductory golf experience, after which they can participate in a six- to eight-week program, taught by PGA Professionals trained to work with Veterans with physical and emotional disabilities. After completion of the program, they receive a graduation card, offering them a range of golf-related benefits in their region.

FOSTERING DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

Growing the game is essential to the mission of our Section. An important part of this effort is making sure that people of all backgrounds have access to and feel authentically welcome in the game and business of golf. Our goal is to make golf—both the game and the business—as diverse as the United States. We recognize that there are many dimensions to diversity—age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability and so much more. In order to attract the increasingly diverse consumer population to the game, we are committed to furthering inclusion in our industry and the game of golf.
