Golf is a Game for All
Diversity and inclusion are core values and a focus of SOPGA REACH, and we embrace the spirit of differences. We work each and every day with the PGA of America to have our commitment to diversity and inclusion resonate throughout the organization, the activities, programs and business we conduct, and any practice we implement. We strive to look through a lens of diversity and inclusion at all times.
On our quest toward creating a culture of inclusion within the golf industry, we actively seek collaboration with those who champion diversity and inclusion – organizations and golf facilities that have successfully demonstrated growth with diverse groups. It is vital that the game of golf is truly welcoming to all and perceived barriers are eliminated.
This takes an investment and a commitment to enact real change. As the PGA of America serves its members and grows participation in golf, we help drive the awareness that golf is in fact affordable, welcoming and fun for all individuals regardless of age, gender, ability, background or lifestyle.
We ask ourselves daily, what have we done to increase diversity and accessibility within the game? Taking action and making regular progress fuels the cultural transformation and our commitment that the face of the game will become more reflective of the face of society.
