The fellowship is a program that offers access and experience to individuals from diverse backgrounds—whether by gender, age, race or color, national origin or ancestry, sexual orientation, disability, religion or Veteran status—in the area of golf administration. Currently there are fellows in eleven PGA Sections across the country. This entry-level employment experience offers a taste of what a career in the golf industry can provide.
Typically the Fellowship application opens in the Fall of each year. For more information visit https://www.pgareach.org/pgaworks/fellowship
