History of Jobs in Golf Month

Jobs in Golf Month was created by the Professional Golfers’ Association. The PGA of America is the world’s largest working sports organization which was formed in the United States in 1916. It was the idea of businessman Rodman Wanamaker to establish and elevate the standards of the profession and growing interest and participation in the game of golf.

From October 10 to 14, the inaugural PGA Championship was conducted at Siwanoy Country Club in Bronxville, New York. Thirty-two golfers competed with Jim Barnes taking the win. In 1927, the Ryder Cup began and was hosted at Worcester (Mass.) Country Club. This was a competition that matched PGA Professionals to their counterparts from Great Britain. The Ryder Cup has since become one of the pre-eminent events in all sports. The Ryder Cup was canceled from 1939 to 1945 due to World War II but resumed in 1947.

In 1956, the PGA celebrated its 40th anniversary. It had 3,798 members and 31 geographical sections. The PGA moved into its national headquarters in 1981 and the building was expanded in 1990 to accommodate the growing departments and staff. A second building was opened in 2001, which houses the Finance, Championships, and Information Systems departments.

The PGA of America conducts more than 30 tournaments for its members and apprentices and displays its brand as the “gold standard” of the profession.
