PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (June 8, 2015) – The PGA of America has partnered with TOUR GCX Partners (TOURGOLF) to create "PGA ACCESS," a unique golf services program for PGA Corporate Partners and hospitality clients to play golf and entertain clients at private golf facilities run by PGA Professionals nationwide. 
 
As the exclusive provider of PGA ACCESS, TOURGOLF will deliver a turnkey golf participation program to all PGA Patrons, Official Partners and corporate hospitality buyers from PGA spectator events. Combining traditional hospitality with a year-long golf participation program is unique to golf, and PGA ACCESS will provide a platform for expanded golf experiences to clients. 
 
The PGA selected TOURGOLF because of their successful track record of providing impactful corporate golf experiences at a variety of top golf facilities around the country. TOURGOLF's core golf services form the foundation of PGA ACCESS, including unaccompanied "Member for the Day" privileges, customized small group events and a series of single-day outings hosted at championship-caliber facilities around the country. 
 
"For 10 years, TOURGOLF has promoted golf by creating a unique, corporate golf solution for companies to achieve a variety of business objectives," said PGA of America Chief Revenue Officer Kevin Ring. "The PGA of America and TOURGOLF share a common interest in promoting business opportunities that are enabled through golf. PGA ACCESS provides our Partners with a customized golf program that will enable salespeople and business leaders to entertain their clients and expand business relationships, while also driving rounds and revenue to PGA member facilities." 
 
"PGA ACCESS is focused on the participation side of golf hospitality and will enable golf to capture a greater share of corporate entertainment spend," adds Gary Rosenberg, co-founder and President of TOURGOLF. "The corporate marketplace presents an opportunistic growth channel for the game. Golf has long been regarded as the sport of business, and PGA ACCESS will transcend corporate golf as we know it." 
 
PGA Professionals interested in having their facility participate in PGA ACCESS, along with any companies interested in the program, should contact info@pgaaccess.com.
