Golf industry leaders and how they impact the game

Golf industry leaders and how they impact the game

By Kris Hart

A colleague of mine at Nextgengolf said that before he started working here, he had no idea who does what in golf. This colleague is an avid golfer who grew up around the game but interesting enough, he did not know much about golf’s governing bodies and what they really do. I asked a few friends if they knew what the USGA, PGA, and CMAA did, and they had mixed answers. I thought it would be helpful to create a simple guide to golf’s most important associations and governing bodies so golf consumers can better understand the sport and what each organization does. Please note that the list below is not comprehensive, and each organization does more than what is described.

Are you a golf enthusiast looking for a good podcast? I was looking for a new golf podcast the other day and could not believe how many of them exist.

Podcasts are certainly growing in popularity given there are 40 golf podcasts on this list! If we are missing any, please let us know
