TGA Premier Golf is building a path to shape future participation in golf.
One of the game’s leading introductory golf programs, TGA (Teach, Grow, Achieve) is seeking to make a difference through its after-school golf enrichment programs and, perhaps just as importantly, what happens next.
In an industry that’s been seeking a clear road map for junior golf participation, TGA has introduced what it calls its Player Pathway. TGA’s five-level introductory golf program begins on school campuses and community centers – planting the seeds for participation – and then TGA’s Player Pathway funnels kids into partner golf courses running camps, parent-child events and leagues, as well as becoming a feeder system into national programs such as Drive, Chip and Putt, PGA Junior League, LPGA*USGA Girls Golf, Youth on Course, and U.S. Kids Golf’s events.
TGA has partnered with hundreds of local golf courses and driving ranges to help bridge its participants, 70% of whom have never played golf before, from introductory programs to more traditional recreational golf programs. It’s a dedicated effort to improve the interaction between programs and, ultimately, grow the game.
