Our upcoming Fall Meeting & Fall Forum will be at Bethpage State Park on Wednesday, Oct. 29th. PGA President Ted Bishop will be an honored guest as he returns to the spot where he made the historic announcement one year ago of the PGA’s plan to come to Bethpage Black for the 2019 PGA and 2024 Ryder Cup. The Fall Meeting enables the members to celebrate the 2014 season and review the activities of the Section and help set the course for the coming year with the election of officers and the Nominating Committee.
