PGA WORKS is a strategic initiative, designed to diversify the golf industry’s workforce. Funded by PGA REACH and in partnership with PGA Sections, PGA WORKS leverages fellowships, scholarships, career exploration events, and the PGA WORKS Collegiate Championship to inspire and engage talent from diverse backgrounds to pursue key employment positions across the golf industry.
