Club Association

The Met PGA Club Association was inaugurated 28 years ago with over 50 Charter Members.  It is a unique partnership between the Metropolitan PGA and the outstanding clubs and courses within our geographical boundaries.  The Met PGA continues to endeavor to promote the game with the financial and philosophical support of the area clubs. In the preceding paragraphs we have outlined some of the services and programs offered by the Metropolitan PGA.  Our Association’s goal will be to maintain the high standards to which the golfers in the Metropolitan area have become accustomed and so richly deserve. Our fee of $375.00 per year is approximately $1.50 per member for a club.  We hope you will agree that the efforts of our Association justify the continued support to help maintain the traditions of our great game.
