Contact the Golf Industry Supplier Diversity Initiative

The goal of The PGA of America is to make the game of golf accessible to everyone, everywhere. The goals of the PGA Supplier Diversity Initiative compliment this by seeking to:

  • Increase the number of minority and women-owned businesses that are “invested” in the game of golf.
  • Increase the volume of spend with these companies, and;
  • Leverage the above to increase participation rates in golf among people of color and women.
