Support local and national charities and be recognized through events, programs and the efforts of individual PGA Professionals


Cultivate and enhance relationships with local charities. Promote the philanthropic efforts of the Chapter and Section as well as individual PGA Professionals.

Ultimately the image of the PGA Professional and the PGA brand will be elevated through the positive, life enhancing impact of these efforts and programs.

2019 Goals:

  • Assist in the marketing and execution of the WWCPGA High School Coaching Workshop alongside the Professional Development Committee.
  • Increase the donation made at the Patriot Golf Day Scramble from the WWCPGA to the American Lakes Veterans.
  • Enhance the exposure of PGA professionals giving back to our community. As a committee we plan to identify our fellow PGA Professionals and assist them in telling their stories and promoting what PGA professionals are doing within the community.
  • Identify and support an additional charity to replace the Toy Drive for 2019.
