In keeping with our vision for a golf industry workforce that mirrors America, the PGA of America has launched PGA JobMatch. Each year, the PGA of America invites local talent from underrepresented backgrounds to register for PGA JobMatch and work in positions that support the PGA’s high-profile Major Championships (The PGA Championship, KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, and the Ryder Cup).

Job opportunities include part-time and full-time temporary work for pre-, during and post-Championship events from April to July. A variety of positions need to be filled each year within areas such as hospitality, concessions, retail, logistics, carpentry, construction, merchandise, marketing, and miscellaneous services:

“PGA JobMatch supports our pursuit of a golf industry workforce that mirrors America,” PGA of America Chief People Officer Sandy Cross said. “The opportunity for individuals from a variety of backgrounds, identities and abilities to work on a Major Championship is pretty special. It provides a unique experience and inspiration for the jobs and career opportunities that exist in golf.”

The PGA works with diverse talent and employment associations, as well as local partners to encourage candidates to register for PGA JobMatch.  Connections are then made between qualified candidates and key PGA vendors and partners, such as Barton G and Cornerstone Parking Group.
