Finding a golf lesson has never been easier with the new PGA Play platform which connects golfers to PGA Professionals
The PGA is delighted to introduce PGA Play, a free digital platform that connects golfers looking for lessons, as well as those wanting to take up the game, with their local PGA Professionals in the UK and Ireland, and a number of overseas locations.
Launched in early August and building on the success of The PGA’s Find a Golf Lesson offering – which has delivered more than 100,000 users and thousands of lesson enquiries over the past year alone – PGA Play is now a standalone platform that enables golfers to search for their nearest PGA Professional by location, coaching requirement and several other bespoke filters.
A collaborative approach to getting more people into golf
Through PGA Play, The PGA is working collaboratively with other industry bodies to be a call to action for a range of initiatives encouraging people to take up golf. This includes The R&A and its exciting new golf.golf pilot scheme, as well as the home nations.
In addition, PGA Play will also signpost golfers towards existing initiatives and will be embedded in a number of external golf sites to further increase its reach.
Richard Barker, Executive Director – Business Development, commented:
“This is a really exciting initiative that is a huge step forward from Find a Golf Lesson. It’s very much a part of a long-term commitment to grow the game, inspire people to play and promote the expertise and services of our PGA Members. We are also delighted to be collaborating with so many industry partners to help make it easier to take that first step towards becoming a golfer.
“Looking ahead, a number of further additions to PGA Play will be made in the coming months, including secondary services such as custom-fitting, retail services and integrated lesson bookings – making the platform a one-stop shop for anyone interested in any aspect of the game.”
PGA Play to reaffirm PGA Professionals as the authority on the game
PGA Play also contains a range of instruction and game improvement content, from PGA Members and partners, with more being added all the time. This enables Members to market themselves directly to the golfing public and increase their reach.
With the creation of so much helpful content, The PGA aspires to make PGA Play the go-to platform for golf coaching, learning and inspiration, reaffirming PGA Professionals as the authority on the game.
