Play Golf America was designed to promote the game of golf among new and occasional adult golfers and 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 Web site to serve as a link for consumers to access fun, affordable and informative programs in their area.
Started in January, 2004, Play Golf America’s goal is to reach the millions of non-golfers who have expressed a desire to play, and the millions of occasional golfers who play between one and seven times per year.
