PGA Pro

The PGA is a members’ organisation for golf professionals. It has been at the heart of the game since 1901, when professionals of the day, led by the Great Triumvirate of JH Taylor, Harry Vardon and James Braid, formed an organisation to protect the professionals’ interests and promote the game of golf.

Now based at Centenary House at the famous Belfry, scene of four Ryder Cups, the Association is flourishing with more than 7,000 members.

Most are club professionals specialising in the core subjects of coaching and retailing, but increasing numbers are occupying managerial roles within golf clubs and resorts, both at home and overseas.

R&A

Formed in 2004 and based in St Andrews, The R&A seeks to engage in and support activities that are undertaken for the benefit of the game of golf. It takes its name from The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, the members’ club that, before 2004, had responsibility for the game but from which The R&A is now separate and distinct.

The Paul Lawrie Foundation is one of six junior development initiatives headed by former Open Champions that The R&A supports. These programmes form part of an annual contribution to the development of the game that is in excess of £5 million.

The R&A organises The Open Championship, golf’s oldest Major, along with a number of other professional, amateur and junior events, some of which are sanctioned by other golfing bodies. In addition, The R&A assumes responsibility for the administration of the Rules of Golf with the consent of 143 organisations from the amateur and professional game, and on behalf of over 30 million golfers in 128 countries throughout Europe, Africa, Asia-Pacific and the Americas.

For the USA and Mexico, the USGA is the governing body, an organisation with whom The R&A has jointly issued the Rules of Golf since 1952.

Ryder Cup European Development Trust

The Ryder Cup European Development Trust was set up in order to support golf at grass roots level throughout Europe. The idea of the Trust is to get more people starting to play golf, continuing to play and ultimately succeeding in the game.

Samuel Ryder started the Ryder Cup in 1927, and after some 65 years of the competition being under the ownership of The PGA, it was then run as a 50/50 joint venture with The European Tour. In 2004 a new Ryder Cup agreement was drawn up, to involve The PGAs of Europe through a charitable trust, changing the split to 60/20/20, with the European Tour becoming the managing partner. At the same time the Ryder Cup European Development Trust was created, in order to allow the Ryder Cup to put even more back into grass roots golf across the continent. The PGA remained significantly involved as the founding partner.

The Ryder Cup European Development Trust is a registered charity under the control of The PGAs of Europe, with objectives to further develop golf across Europe. The Trust manages its share of profits from the Ryder Cup in a tax-efficient method to give the Trust the opportunity to maximise funds to contribute to golf projects across Europe.

Neil Fyfe Golf Foundation

The Neil Fyfe Foundation was established by family & friends to honour the memory of Neil who was tragically killed whilst living in the United States. He had been there following his dreams and working within the golf industry.

Neil had been out in the States for a number of years where he was doing what he loved, to be a caddie on the US Tour circuit. He had worked at various high-profile venues and had also caddied on several occasions for both Luke Donald and basketball star Michael Jordan.

The family decided that they wanted donations to go towards the development of young talent within the game that Neil loved and we are grateful that they chose Paul’s Foundation as their nominated charity.

Neil’s Foundation was set-up by his father, Steve, and a number of Neil’s dearest friends, in his memory.

He was himself a talented, committed and passionate golfer and funds raised through his Foundation’s events go towards supporting promising young golfers, helping them reach their potential. These are distributed through the Paul Lawrie Foundation’s programme.
