At the MAPGA, we are always looking to implement strategies, initiatives and programs to expand the reach of golf among current and potential players. With the help from Mike Aldrich our Regional Player Development Manager, the MAPGA focuses on growing participation through both youth and adult initiatives.
Our youth initiative PGA Junior League has seen tremendous success with over 200 teams in the MAPGA participating in the Little League of golf program. For adults, Get Golf Ready is designed to teach everything you’ll need to play golf in just a few quick lessons.
And lastly, the MAPGA focuses on helping provide financial and equipment support to PGA Members for Player Development initiatives. Through the Player Development Grant and the Junior Golf Grant, PGA Professionals can apply on an annual basis for financial support to help run their own local programs. PGA Professionals can also rent free equipment from the MAPGA, like Golfzilla, for events and functions at their club.
