An Update on COVID-19 from The Southern Texas PGA

March 17th, 2020

Good morning STPGA Community,

We are in uncharted territory.  Updates around this virus change daily and the STPGA would like to make an official announcement around our business.  As we stated from the beginning, the safety and well-being of our staff, members, and junior golfers are our top priorities.     

The STPGA has postponed/canceled all Section and foundation activities between today, March 17, 2020, and April 12, 2020.

In addition to the items in our release on Friday that can be found by clicking here, some additional updates include the following.

Pro-Pro Match Play – All players in this event will receive an email by tomorrow with an updated outline on when matches need to be completed by.  Since this “event” is done on your own with less than 10 people, it will be up to the Professionals to decide if they would like to play matches during these next few weeks.  However, we are adjusting the timeline on when matches need to be finished so that people are not required to play in the next few weeks. 

PGA HOPE – The upcoming seminar on April 2 for PGA Professionals has been canceled and all PGA HOPE programming has been postponed for the spring.  Our lead instructors will be contacting all participates around this update.

STPGA Junior Golf – All STPGA Junior Golf tournaments will be canceled during this time period.  Click Here for the full release sent directly to junior golfers. 

It is our goal to maintain all events starting on Monday, April 13.  This includes the PAT scheduled for the Golf Trails of The Woodlands and the Senior Series at Lady Bird on April 13-14.  Please stay in touch with STPGA social media and our weekly e-newsletters for updates. 

Lastly, please let the STPGA know if we can help in any way during these times. The entire staff will be working and can be contacted by email or phone. 

The PGA of America has come out with a site for PGA Members that can be found by clicking here.  It lists a lot of great information around the virus and what facilities are doing.   

Thank you very much for your time and stay safe.

Thomas Hutton, PGA
