This membership is designed for anyone that isn’t already a member of The PGA.

How long does my membership last?

BMG Plus and BMG Premium are renewed every 12 months however the BMG option is a monthly rolling membership.

Can I upgrade to BMG Plus or BMG premium?

Yes, as BMG runs on a monthly rolling basis you are able to upgrade your membership at any time.

Do I need to be working or volunteering in golf to join?

Yes. BMG is about helping to support and develop the workforce of golf and will be open to everyone within the game. Applicants will have to demonstrate that they have a job in management within the golf industry or be volunteering within a golf facility to gain access.

Does this mean I’m a PGA Member?

Those who join the Business Management Group will not be ‘Members’ of the Association or entitled to use the brand in the same way that full PGA Members can. We hope that those who join BMG will develop a greater understanding of the importance and value of the PGA Professional, whilst also enhancing their own skills.

Why has The PGA created BMG?

BMG has been created to support the business of golf. This means that joining the group is designed to offer value to everyone from all sectors, regardless of experience. It gives everyone an opportunity to join a professional body and be part of what is hoped will become the leading industry network for knowledge sharing, networking and career development.
