Birdie Club

WHAT IS THE BIRDIE CLUB?

The Birdie Club is a player performance-based fund drive to get Junior Tour members involved in community outreach. Through an interactive and fun approach, this program helps juniors gain a further sense of pride and accomplishment beyond their performance during Junior Tour events.

WHO DOES THE BIRDIE CLUB HELP?

The Birdie Club supports the South Florida PGA Foundation.    

We also allow juniors to select an additional charity of their choice to support as well. If funds raised are greater than $100 a portion of those funds can be allocated to a local non-profit charity of the juniors choice.

WHY SHOULD YOU BE INVOLVED IN THE BIRDIE CLUB?

The Birdie Club helps others all around South Florida in making a difference. By getting involved you are taking the first step in giving back. Rally your friends and family to get involved and give back collectively. In addition, the winner of the 2017 season will win a premium gift along with an exemption into the 2018 Junior PGA Championship Event.
