Kentucky PGA

Growth of the Game Event

On Wednesday, April 12 the Kentucky PGA Section will be hosting the 2023 Growth of the Game Event at Woodhaven Country Club in Louisville. This will be a 54-hole event for Members and Associates of the Section designed to create positive momentum for Section initiatives, and the participant's favorite charity as well.

FORMAT

Participants will play 54 holes at Woodhaven in this fashion:

  • One 18-hole round at the championship course
  • Two 9-hole rounds at the par-three course
  • One 18-hole round at the putting course

After the round on the championship course and before the rounds on the par-three course, lunch will be provided to each of the participants.

FUNDRAISING

The participants do not have an entry fee and will be asked to get people to donate on their behalf. If John Doe, PGA wants to participate, John would contact his members, customers, friends or family members asking for people to pitch in money towards his participation. If John has $500 worth of donations come in, half of that money would be donated to the KPGA's Player Development Grant. The other half would go towards a charity of John's choosing.

The money raised for Section intiatives will be used for scholarship funding, providing golf clubs to juniors who don't own a set of clubs, education opportunities about the game, its rules and etiquette, fostering the promotion of golf for women and Veterans, and funding opportunities for golf instruction. 

REGISTRATION

Section Members and Associates who want to participate in the Growth of the Game Event at Woodhaven on April 12 can sign up using the link below. Registration will close on Friday, March 31.

DONATIONS

Participants of the event can use this template email to send to people in regards to seeking a donation.

People who want to donate can pay right away by clicking here. In the "Additional Comments" box, please clarify that your donation is for the Growth of the Game Event and specify which participant you are sponsoring.

Those wanting to contribute additional funds, or anyone who does not want to donate right away, can opt to contribute through the Pledge for Performance campaign. This allows a donator to set a specific dollar figure that they will contribute for scores the player makes throughout the event. For example, if Jane wants to donate on John Doe, PGA's behalf, before the event she could indicate she will donate $20 for every birdie John makes during the event and $10 for every par he makes. If John makes 5 birdies and 10 pars, Jane would then donate $200. Jane will receive an invoice from the Kentucky PGA following the event and pay at that time.
