One of the great attributes of the game of golf is the charitable nature of the sport, it’s participants and those that work in the industry.  Whether it is the almost $4B raised for charity each year or the impact golf has on the lives of youth, veterans and so many others, the game and its people have historically always been there for others.

During these incredibly challenging times presented by the Coronavirus pandemic, many of those workers in golf, who are normally there for others, are now in need of help themselves. In order to help certain individuals who are in need of a helping hand, the PGA of America has provided a lead gift to support the launch of the Golf Emergency Relief Fund which will have an immediate focus on helping those impacted by COVID-19.  When you make a gift to the Golf Emergency Relief Fund, you are helping people recover from times of crisis or disaster. Further details around eligibility are forthcoming, with applications being accepted as early as Thursday, May 27 at 9 a.m. ET at
