ABOUT US

The Professional Golfers’ Association of Japan (“the PGA of Japan”) was founded in 1957 as a membership organization of male professional golfers by consolidating a professional golfers’ association in eastern Japan and one in western Japan

We run the PGA of Japan Seniors Tour, the Japan PGA Championship which is the oldest and longest-running tournament in Japan, among other games.

Our missions are to enhance the standards of the profession of golf and promote golf as a participation sport as well as a watching one. By holding various events for junior golfers and others of all skill levels, we have devoted ourselves to expand golf as a national sport in Japan which is accessible and enjoyable to more and more potential golf fans.

The Association has maintained significant growth and is now comprised of over 5,000 male professional golfers together with Tournament Players and Teaching Professionals.
