The New England PGA is a non-profit association dedicated to promoting the game of golf and improving the vocation of the golf professional in New England. The New England PGA is one of the 41 sections of the PGA of America, and the New England PGA has more than 1100 PGA Members and apprentice golf professionals making it the 8th largest section in the country. Our geographic area covers Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island and Eastern Massachusetts.
The New England PGA conducts more than 200 golf tournaments annually for professional, amateur, and junior golfers throughout New England. Our leadership, innovativeness and quality have become synonymous with the New England PGA programs and have elevated the NEPGA to a position of prominence both in the local golf community and among its national counterparts. The New England PGA boasts some of the finest golf courses in the world hosting major championships for the PGA of America, PGA Tour and the USGA.
Golf has flourished here in New England, largely because of the willingness and desire of our area clubs and courses to support and maintain the traditions and heritage of the game.
That same concern for the game has manifested in the selection of quality golf professionals from around the country for a myriad of reasons, not the least of which is the quality of the working environment at our area clubs and courses.
For the NEPGA Professional, “Growing the Game” is not just a theme, but a professional commitment and challenge. With over 100 hours of education and business conducted annually in the New England Section, along with a wide range of Player Development and Growth of the Game initiatives, our Travel Partners will truly been just that - allies in making our game and our association better.
We provide a wide range of junior activities, highlighted by almost 90 annual events, along with a schedule of tournaments for assistants, seniors, women and amateurs, as well as our more high-profile championships.
Not all of our constituency shares in the major sponsor relationships, but all of our professionals and their members can benefit from the Travel Partners Program involvement. Through our communications vehicles (NEPGA Travel Partners Site, NEPGA Newsletter, E-Marketing) we also deliver thousands of impressions and the promotion of our most loyal supporters.
We invite our 2014 NEPGA Travel Partners Program members to enjoy a unique and hopefully, mutually beneficial relationship with the New England PGA Section.
