New platform created by publishers of PGA Magazine focuses on the 2,000-plus PGA Professionals classified as General Managers
HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. – The publishers of PGA Magazine recently announced the creation of the PGA Magazine General Managers Program, a new initiative aimed at building collaboration and connection between the 2,000-plus PGA Professionals in the PGA of America’s A-9 & A-13 membership classification.
The announcement was made by PGA Magazine CEO Richard K. Summers and President Brian Folino.
“The golf industry is realizing how valuable PGA Professionals can be as general managers of all facility types, and the PGA Magazine General Managers Program will create an exclusive network for these PGA General Managers to connect with each other on topics relevant to golf facility operations,” Folino said. “We are excited to launch this program and bring together PGA General Managers to network and learn from each other.”
The mission of the PGA Magazine General Managers Program is to facilitate environments where PGA General Managers can network and share best practices with their peers. This will be accomplished through a variety of programming and content platforms, including in-person meetings around the country, virtual events, a website, a monthly e-publication and more.
To guide this new effort, a PGA Magazine General Managers Program Advisory Team has been created. This diverse group of 15 PGA Professionals will share their expertise to help guide the program and its members in developing programming that will help provide insights on industry trends and best practices for PGA General Managers at all facility types.
