PGA TOUR Superstore to Sponsor TGA’s Fun Golf Series
The Texas Golf Association is excited to announce PGA TOUR Superstore will be the presenting sponsor of its annual Fun Golf Series for the 2021 season.
Texas is home to a great many passionate golfers who like to play the game for recreation and sheer enjoyment. That’s why the TGA in 2015 established the Fun Golf Series as a way to increase playing opportunities for its members who are looking for a relaxing day on the course with family and friends.
Thousands of TGA Members and their guests – men and women golfers of all ages and handicap ranges – have jumped in over the past six years to participate in these casual, one-day outings that celebrate the recreational aspect of the game. For many, it’s exactly what they’ve been looking for, a chance to enjoy being outdoors with like-minded people, playing new and exciting courses – oftentimes private clubs – at a discounted fee.
Some of the state’s premier courses have hosted Fun Golf events, including both the Oaks and Canyons Courses at TPC San Antonio, Shady Valley Country Club, Crown Colony Country Club, Walden on Lake Conroe, Lantana Golf Club, The Rawls Course and Bentwater Yacht & Country Club to name a few.
Each Fun Golf Series event features an optional, low-key tournament to sign up for with inclusive formats suitable for every type of golfer. Players are flighted based on gender and handicap, with prizes awarded in gross and net divisions. Participation in the competition is never mandatory and neither is turning in a scorecard. Anyone who signs up for Fun Golf event is welcome to come out and just enjoy playing a relaxing round on a great course.
“The TGA is really excited about having our first Fun Golf presenting sponsor,” said Kelly Kilgo, the TGA’s Director of Outreach. “Our Fun Golf Series started with just a couple of events each year in the beginning, and now we host 30 events annually all over the state. Fun Golf caters to men and women of all ages and skill levels and is a perfect atmosphere for golfers who simply love to play new courses with good people. Through the Fun Golf Series, PGA TOUR Superstore will be able to connect with thousands of recreational golfers across Texas.”
PGA TOUR Superstore is Texas’ leading golf experiential specialty retailer. PGA TOUR Superstore offers guests the largest variety of apparel for men, women and juniors, in addition to a wide assortment of clubs, accessories and footwear. Inside PGA TOUR Superstore, expansive putting greens, simulators and practice bays are available for customers’ use.
As part of the Company’s core values, they are committed to giving back to others, being a positive influence in the communities they operate and growing the game for all.
Currently, PGA TOUR Superstore operates six stores across the state of Texas and will look to continue to expand its presence in golf-centric markets across the state. The Company recently announced plans to open three additional stores in Texas in later this year including, Arlington, San Antonio and a third store in the Houston-area.
