THE PGA OF AMERICA, GOLF DIGEST and Nike Golf have partnered to
launch Welcome to Golf Month in May, a new Play Golf America program
evolving from PGA Free Lesson Month. While free 10-minute lessons from
PGA/LPGA Professionals are the foundation of Welcome to Golf Month,
additional complimentary introductory programs, orientations and Get
Golf Ready clinics are also part of the month-long promotion.
“Welcome to Golf Month is the perfect time to get out and give golf a
try by taking a free 10-minute lesson or by participating in a free golf
clinic,” said PGA of America President Allen Wronowski.
“We encourage golfers to bring their family and friends to the
course to share in the experience and have a great time together.”
More than 1.1 million people have received free 10-minute lessons in
May since 1998 when the PGA of America and Golf Digest
introduced PGA Free Lesson Month, one of the most successful
growth-of-the-game initiatives in the golf industry.
Every golfer who participates in Welcome to Golf Month is encouraged to
enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win a two-day and two-night getaway
and golf school at the PGA Center for Golf Learning and Performance in
Port St. Lucie, Florida, or two sets of Nike golf clubs.
