Southern Golf Association Announces Partnership with Global Golf Post

BIRMINGHAM, AL (January 10, 2017) – The Southern Golf Association (SGA) announced today that Global Golf Post, the leading golf news weekly publication in the world, has signed a multiyear sponsorship commitment, becoming an official partner to the organization.

“Our shared commitment to promoting the game, as well as the world’s best amateur golfers, makes the partnership with Global Golf Post a natural fit” stated Buford McCarty, Executive Secretary of the SGA. “Our talented and dedicated Board of Directors has recognized the need to expand our reach and offerings so that we can continue to be a leader in the industry. Partnering with organizations and brands that share our vision and goals will help us to accelerate those efforts.”

The Global Golf Post sponsorship provides the SGA with advertising, media coverage of the Southern Junior Championship, the Southern Amateur Championship as well as gifting for both events. In addition, the two organizations have launched an effort that will help a deserving junior golfer a grant to cover his or her expenses at the 2017 Southern Junior Championship.

Said Global Golf Post Publisher, Jim Nugent “We are honored to serve the Southern Golf Association, its member clubs and individual golfers. The Post has in common with the SGA a devotion to the amateur game, and we look forward to supporting the associations efforts in this regard for many years to come.”

Association member clubs have the opportunity for their club members to sign up for a free subscription to Global Golf Post at a dedicated microsite. For each subscription, Global Golf Post will contribute a set amount to the grant. The funds will be awarded to a qualified player with financial need, enabling the youngster to play in one of the most important junior competitions in the nation.
