About WGF > Mission  




The mission of the World Golf Foundation is to unite the golf industry in support of initiatives that enhance the growth of and provide access to the game of golf worldwide, while preserving golf's traditional values and passing them on to others.

In support of that mission, World Golf Foundation focuses on a variety of initiatives to grow and celebrate the game of golf around the world.  Through The First Tee, the World Golf Foundation focuses on positively impacting the lives of young people.  Under the banner of the World Golf Hall of Fame, it recognizes and celebrates golf's greatest players and contributors and serves as an inspiration to golfers and fans worldwide.  The World Golf Foundation's GOLF 20/20 initiative pursues programs to ensure golf's continued growth and vitality.  All World Golf Foundation initiatives work together to support the growth of the game among youth, women and minorities, while also fostering diversity within the golf industry.

The World Golf Foundation also supports the golf industry in a variety of other roles, including acting as a centralized vehicle for communicating the industry's initiatives to the media, providing a forum for golf's organizations to collaborate on initiatives of mutual importance and commissioning and disseminating to golf's  stakeholders research on key aspects of the game.
