PGA gives support to Golf Foundation

Charity to benefit from £100,000 donation.

Schemes that are designed to increase the number of youngsters taking part in golf have been given a boost with a donation from the Professional Golfers’ Association.

The PGA has donated £100,000 to the Golf Foundation, which is playing a significant role in making golf more accessible.

PGA chief executive Sandy Jones said: “The PGA is very committed to supporting the Golf Foundation and PGA Professionals in encouraging the next generation of golfers into the sport.

“On a daily basis we see their efforts at grass roots level and the PGA, on behalf of its members, is delighted to support their work.”

‘The PGA continues to be a major supporter of this charity’
Among the projects run by the foundation as part of its HSBC Golf Roots programme are Street Golf, Golf Xtreme and Tri-Golf sessions in the community and schools.

The foundation has also introduced a Junior Golf Passport scheme which is aimed at helping clubs attract new golfers.

Chief executive Brandon Pyle said: “This significant donation from the PGA will be hugely beneficial towards our national strategy which is bringing golf and its benefits to a new generation of young players.”
