The Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) has restructured its development of international activities. PGA Golf Management, the design development and management subsidiary of the PGA, will now be based at its national headquarters at the De Vere Belfry.
It will just focus on operational and management issues and, in a separate move, the creative elements which relate to course planning, design and architecture will be dealt with by a new company to be called PGA Design Consulting Ltd.
PGADC specialists will also deal with technical publications and audits, act as expert witnesses and offer pre-opening management consultancy services.
The former technical director of PGA Golf Management, Bob Hunt, has been appointed as managing director of PGA Design Consulting, which will continue to be based in Bristol.
PGA chief executive Sandy Jones believes the new structure will enable the most efficient use of resources and provide improved levels of service to their clients around the world.
