Canadian PGA members and the association’s board of directors have approved a name change to the PGA of Canada. The association logo will remain unchanged.
“After celebrating our centennial, it’s important for our association to not only recognize our history but to build on our future”, said president Glenn Cundari. “We are excited about our future as we implement new and exciting initiatives, giving our members the tools to grow the game.
“Changing our name to PGA of Canada is one of those initiatives, allowing us to harmonize with the international golf community and making our members part of the larger PGA family,” he added.
Executive director Gary Bernard added that the PGA brand is one of the most recognizable brands in the world.
“This name change will allow us to leverage the PGA brand more effectively and better align our association and our members within the PGA World Alliance, ultimately giving us better visibility within the golf industry”.
The PGA of Canada is a member of the PGA World Alliance, an organization that includes 10 PGAs and 56,000 members worldwide
