TGA Mentors (In development)

One of life’s great accomplishments may be finding employment that is fun, exciting and fulfilling. TGA Foundation WORK programs provide opportunities to experience to the vast network of jobs, mentors and interests that the golf community provides.  


TGA Works

The TGA Works program connects motivated high school golfers and member clubs through a paid summer job working under qualified professional golf staff.  In many cases, interns have limited access to golf courses, pro shops and clubhouses. As a golf course staff member, interns will gain first-hand experience in hospitality, responsibility and teamwork.  TGA Works interns also receive golf instruction from certified golf professionals, access to course facilities and the ability to make friends and learn from their co-workers, supervisors and club members. Earning a TGA Works internship may prove to be a life changing opportunity.

TGA MentorsProgram in Development

The TGA Foundation is seeking funding and volunteers to participate in the TGA Mentors program - a new intiative to provide practical advice and a helping hand to young people at the beginning stages of their careers.

The game of golf provides a network that reaches beyond collegiate affiliation, racial and gender boundaries, geographic area and generations. The TGA Mentors program will form connections between experts in today’s industries and tomorrow’s leaders based on a shared love of the game.

The program aims to takes action on a point that many organizations talk about – the business and networking value of golf.  While this is a recognized value, there are not many programs that facilitate the process.  By placing golf in the center of a person’s professional network, TGA Foundation hopes to build a lasting relationship with golf for the participants and mentors.  These relationships will not only contribute to the sustainable growth of the game but also show an example and set an expectation for giving back as the young professionals strive to become the mentors of the future.

If your are a [GOLFER] you are a mentor!  Examples of valuable mentoring relationships:

  • Attorneys
  • Engineers

  • Educators / Administrators
  • Sales Professionals
  • Real Estate Professionals
