14 - PGA Sections

PGA OF AMERICA SECTIONS The PGA of America is divided into 41 geographical Sections. Each PGA Section operates within the framework of the PGA Constitution. Many Sections also are sub-divided into Chapters for the geographical convenience of its members. Two Sections (Kentucky and Metropolitan) have geographical Districts. The Sections hold elections each year for individual officers and maintain their own staffs, headed by an executive director who administers the operations of the Section. The Sections maintain a close working relationship with The PGA of America National Headquarters staff in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. Each Section conducts its own events for PGA members, apprentices and amateur golfers. For example, each individual Section conducts an annual Section PGA Professional Championship for its members, in addition to other member tournaments throughout the season. The Sections also provide the grass roots network necessary to accomplish direct communication with the nation’s 26 million golfers. The Sections also conduct regional qualifying events for amateur events, including the Junior PGA Championship. Furthermore, PGA Sections conduct educational programs, workshops and seminars for the benefit of their members and apprentices. They work with the national office to provide nationally renowned experts for these programs, thus assisting PGA Professionals in fulfilling The PGA’s mission of making golf fun for everyone, everywhere.
