Diversity & Inclusion
Golf is a game for all.
Diversity and inclusion are core values and a focus of PGA REACH, and we embrace the spirit of differences. We work each and every day with the PGA of America to have this commitment resonate throughout our organization, the activities, programs and business we conduct, and any practice we implement.
On our quest toward creating a culture of inclusion within the golf industry, we actively seek collaboration with those who champion diversity and inclusion – organizations and golf facilities that have successfully demonstrated growth with diverse groups. It is vital that the game of golf is truly welcoming to all and perceived barriers are eliminated.
This takes an investment and a commitment to enact real change. As the PGA of America serves its members and grows participation in golf, we help drive the awareness that golf is in fact affordable, welcoming and fun for all individuals regardless of age, gender, ability, background or lifestyle.
We ask ourselves daily, what have we done to extend an open invitation to all to become involved in the game of golf? Taking action and making regular progress fuels the cultural transformation and our commitment that the face of the game will become more reflective of the face of society.
Our leading alliances include:
PGA REACH Diversity Internship Pilot Program – Post-graduate internship to create a more diverse pipeline of individuals working in the golf industry.
National Alliance for Accessible Golf – The PGA is a proud member of the Board of Directors of the Alliance and supports their efforts to ensure the opportunity exists for all individuals with disabilities to play the game of golf.
