Frisco, Texas, United States: The PGA of America is partnering with Aivot Golf & Sports Management Private Limited, a new entity focused on land acquisition, recreational sports management, and the creation of hotel and residential developments across India.

This strategic collaboration between the PGA of America and Aivot aims to elevate golf in India through the creation of world-class golf courses, golf academies, and state-of-the-art hotel and residential amenities.

The partnership underscores the PGA of America’s commitment to nurturing golfers at all levels and propelling the sport’s expansion globally.

Under the partnership, the PGA of America and Aivot will work to make a meaningful impact on the Indian golfing community. This collaborative effort will focus on developing new and existing golf infrastructure, providing unparalleled opportunities for aspiring golfers and promoting the sport’s accessibility and inclusivity.

Initial developments are scheduled with multiple PGA of America-branded golf facilities throughout India. These facilities will provide a mix of golf courses, academies and training centres, offering golfers the chance to enhance their skills and learn from top-tier PGA Professionals.

Comprehensive programming designed by the PGA of America and Aivot will cater to golfers of all ages, while offering progressive learning programmes for all skill levels.

As part of the partnership, local Indian golf professionals working within the PGA of America Golf Academies network will have the opportunity to embark on a rewarding journey towards PGA of America Class A Membership, enriching their careers in the process.

By combining the expertise of the PGA’s network of PGA Professionals with Aivot’s influence in the region, the PGA of America Golf Academies will deliver unparalleled coaching and training experiences. These initiatives will foster a supportive environment where golfers can realise their full potential, while cultivating a lifelong passion for the game.

“Together, we will leverage our expertise to revolutionise golfer training – utilising advanced technologies and development methodologies to empower individuals to excel on and off the course. This partnership will provide a hub for innovation and excellence in golfer development for India. Through collaborative endeavours with strategic partners, we look forward to an inspiring future.”

The partnership between the PGA of America and Aivot Golf & Sports Management Private Limited is poised to make a significant impact on golfing infrastructure and development throughout India.
