South Central Section PGA Foundation

WHO WE ARE
The South Central PGA Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization committed to positively impacting lives through the game of golf. The South Central PGA Foundation was created for the purpose of administering the philanthropic affairs on behalf of the golf professionals within the South Central Section of the PGA. These affairs include, but are not limited to, promotion and growth of junior golf, scholarship programs, and programs for underprivileged youth and contribution to allied charitable organizations.

The South Central Section of the PGA is a non-for-profit organization comprised of approximately 400 PGA Members and 60 Apprentices who strive to promote the enjoyment and growth of the game of golf. The South Central Section of the PGA encompasses the entire States of Oklahoma, Arkansas and the southern third of Kansas. The Section office is located in Broken Arrow, OK and acts as a resource for local and national golf information for the golf professional and amateur player alike. Our members are often referred to as “Club Professionals”, not to be mistaken as PGA Tour Professionals. Each South Central Section PGA Professional serves as an expert in the ever-changing business of golf. They are the leading expert players and teachers, skilled business managers, community leaders, and superior merchandisers who have dedicated their careers to the local delivery of these services.

WHAT WE DO
YMCA Youth Golf Through an ongoing partnership with YMCA branches throughout the Section, PGA Professionals take the game of golf into The YMCA as an additional youth sport, instructing YMCA members of the fundamentals of the game and transitioning them to member courses for follow up instruction and playing opportunities. The South Central PGA Foundation has the potential to positively impact the lives of thousands of youth through YMCA programs such as Healthy Kids Day, YMCA Youth Golf and other partner programs.

Golf in Schools The South Central PGA Foundation Golf in Schools program encompasses more than just teaching the game of golf. It uses equipment designed for all ages and can be used indoors (a gym) or outdoors. Students are taught games that increase hand/eye coordination, while stressing sportsmanship, cooperation and following rules. Most importantly, the program is all-inclusive, it does not omit any child – regardless of physical limitations; all students can participate.

Air Capital Classic
Wichita's long-running Web.com Tour event took on a new name in 2013: the Air Capital Classic; and with it a new identity. A new 501(c)(3) was formed in 2013 to lead and operate the tournament, in concert with the PGA TOUR. Air Capital Charities, Inc. will be the new organization that will operate the "official event of the PGA TOUR" in Wichita and continue to generate funds for local charities. Since 2006, over $1 million has been raised for local charities. Each year, the event generates $4.5 million in economic impact.
