|The Philadelphia Section PGA is one of 41 geographical sections of The PGA of America. Each section serves as the managing entity for their designated regions. The Philadelphia Section covers Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey, from Trenton – south, Delaware and parts of Northern Maryland. This section manages 860 PGA Members and Apprentices who are employed at over 590 golf facilities in our region. An Executive Director guides each section, conducting annual elections of officers and committees, administering events, educational programs, workshops and seminars for its members.
The PGA works to promote the enjoyment and involvement in golf among amateurs and to contribute to the game’s growth by providing services to golf professionals and the industry. The PGA seeks to accomplish this mission by enhancing the skills of PGA Professionals and the opportunities for amateurs, employers, manufacturers, employees and the general public. In so doing, the PGA elevates the standards of the PGA Professional’s vocation, enhances the economic well-being of the individual member, stimulates interest in the game of golf, and promotes the overall vitality of the game.
Our members are the men and women who keep and grow the game of golf. The PGA Professional is an ambassador of the game to amateurs worldwide, is not only a talented teacher and player, but also a tournament director, merchandiser, rules administrator, skilled businessperson and community leader.
