PGA Professionals across the country are gearing up for another year with a full slate of Play Golf America promotions scheduled for 2009. Celebrating five successful years, more than 1.28 million consumers have experienced golf through branded National Promotions, Play Golf America Days and special events since the program was launched in 2004.
This industry player-development program continues to grow with its calendar of events, including national promotions, special events and year-round events, as well as the new Get Golf Ready program. Play Golf America continues to give everyone, regardless of age or skill level, the opportunity to learn or re-learn the game of golf with free and affordable programs.
“PGA and LPGA Professionals have done an outstanding job embracing Play Golf America by offering a variety of free and low cost programs to people of all ages and skill levels nationwide,” PGA of America President Jim Remy said. “Not only does Play Golf America provide fun, flexible and affordable golf options, the game itself promotes a healthier lifestyle through the benefits gained by a simple, yet effective, form of exercise—walking.”
Highlights of the promotional series include PGA Free Lesson Month (May), Women’s Golf Month (June) and Family Golf Month (July).
Play Golf America, designed to increase participation among new and existing golfers, was developed by The PGA of America, with the support of Allied Associations including: the LPGA, National Golf Course Owners Association, PGA Tour, USGA and others involved in the annual Golf 20/20 Conference. The program utilizes the PlayGolfAmerica.com Web site to serve as a link for consumers to access fun, affordable and informative programs in their area.
