May Is Welcome to Golf Month

 By PGA of America

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.

I wish all the newcomers to the great game of golf all the luck. May is a great time of year. Nice and cool. Not too hot out. Perfect time for beginners to start learning.
