Golf industry invited to join new PGA membership groups


The PGA is hosting an exclusive webinar, inviting all those who work or volunteer in golf to join its new membership groups – the Business Management Group and Club Volunteer by PGA.

The session will be hosted by Chief Executive Robert Maxfield and Executive Director of Business Development Richard Barker, who will outline the motivations behind the creation of the new groups, highlight the many benefits of joining and answer any questions on membership.
