Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA)

The LPGA is the world’s leading professional golf organization for women. Founded in 1950 and headquartered in Daytona Beach, Fla., the association celebrates a diverse and storied membership with more than 2,300 Members representing more than 30 countries. With a vision to inspire, empower, educate and entertain by showcasing the very best of women’s golf, LPGA Tour Professionals compete across the globe, while the Symetra Tour, the official development and qualifying tour of the LPGA, consistently produces a pipeline of talent ready for the world stage. Additionally, LPGA Professionals directly impact the game through teaching, coaching and management.

Our culture at the LPGA is built on a powerful principle: “Act Like a Founder”. Our 13 Founding members were passionate about making golf more diverse – in the broadest sense - and leaving the game better than they found it. They were determined, tenacious, creative and feisty. And, they had the courage to stand up for their convictions. The LPGA does not tolerate racism. In 1967, when a Black tour member was denied lodging with the rest of the tour, players from the tour responded: “We all stay or we all go.”

Our goal at the LPGA is to change the face of golf, making the sport we love more accessible and inclusive. Diversity, equity and inclusion are at the heart of who we are and what we do.
