About the South Florida PGA
The South Florida Section of the PGA of America is an association of golf professionals whose mission is to promote interest, participation and enjoyment in the game of golf; establish and maintain professional standards or practice; and enhance the well-being of golf professionals.
Approximately 1,830 members and apprentices are employed at over 475 facilities in the South Florida region, currently ranking South Florida Section the second largest Section of PGA Professionals amongst all 41 PGA Sections in the United States.
Back in 1979, the growth and golf population boom in the state of Florida caused what was once known as just the Florida Section to divide geographically into two Sections, now known as the North Florida and the South Florida PGA Sections. Geographically, the South Florida PGA extends as far North as Vero Beach on the east coast, to Punta Gorda on the west coast, south through the Florida Keys, in addition to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The South Florida Section PGA is further divided into four distinct Chapters, including the Southern, Southeast, Southwest and Island Chapters.
