PGA of America
Golf has a longstanding history of giving back. It begins with the values of sportsmanship, respect and integrity inherent to the game, and continues with the billions of dollars raised annually for charities nationwide. Whether supporting our men and women in uniform, promoting scholastic achievement or providing fundraising opportunities, the golf industry is finding ways for all Americans to benefit from the game.

- Golf generates $3.5 billion per year for charitable causes through thousands of local fundraising events nationwide.
