Working for Golf

August 9th, 2016

Today we have a report about a recent meeting of the members of the PGAs of Europe golf development team, who carry out The R&A’s Working for Golf missions. They are 24 highly skilled and well qualified PGA professionals ready to spread and grow the game all over the world. The short video that runs with this article demonstrates the value of bringing them together to share their experiences from previous trips, exploring the intricacies of their missions to develop the sport, and the many stories from their visits around the globe. It’s well worth watching.
