Earlier this week, the PGA of BC was proud to announce a new Preferred Partnership with  PGS GOLF  through the end of the 2020 season.

In addition to supporting the Association as a Bronze-level Preferred Partner, PGS GOLF will be this year’s presenting sponsor of the PGA of BC’s Ben Colk Golf Shop of the Year Award.

With a wide range of products available, PGS GOLF carries a number of pro-shop staples and items meant to bolster any brand. The company has also launched the PGS GOLF line of accessories, which includes towels, drinkware, socks, rangefinders, sunglasses, umbrellas and more.

Another unique product line PGS GOLF distributes is the Fat Tire Golf Scooter and Trike, a single-rider alternative to the traditional golf cart. Single-rider carts are growing in popularity, as they allow for faster pace of play compared to two-seaters and reduce wear on turf, since they weigh approximately one-quarter as much as a regular cart.
