Philadelphia PGA Section Partners With Mason Dixon Distillery

Lower Gwynedd Township, Pa. (April 24, 2023) — The Philadelphia PGA Section is happy to announce its new partnership with Mason Dixon Distillery, a locally owned distillery based in Gettysburg, Pa., specializing in a grain to glass process for small batch spirits, including vodka, rum, aged rum, and corn whiskey.

As part of the agreement, Mason Dixon Distillery will be supporting the Central Counties Chapter‘s spring and fall membership meetings at Moselem Springs Golf Club and the Country Club of Harrisburg, respectively. The Chapter is comprised of PGA Professionals located in the western most part of the Section’s territory and allows for additional playing opportunities. The company will also support the Section’s Tournament Players Division Championship, typically referred to as the TPD Championship, on Monday, April 24 at Regents’ Glen Country Club.

“We are delighted to have Mason Dixon Distillery join our Section’s family of partners,” said Section Executive Director Geoff Surrette, PGA. “We are also grateful for their desire to support the PGA Professionals in their local area, through our Central Counties Chapter. Any time we can help boost engagement in our Chapter is a win.”

“The newest addition to our lineup of products are our ready to drink canned cocktails,” said Mason Dixon Distillery President Yianni Barakos. “Same as our bottled spirits we make these entirely from scratch and from day one we knew that these would be perfect for golfers and golf courses. Starting up a partnership with the Central Counties Chapter made all of the sense in the world to us as you are already our neighbors, Austin and I look forward to growing the partnership and friendships.”
