Posted on: 10th Jan 2013

70 years ago to this day, the Swiss PGA was founded in Bern. Three committee members together with the President Georges Grisoni from Lausanne and four members started under the name l’Assocation des Professeurs de Golf.

The Swiss PGA is planning some events at the AGM on April 22nd in Otelfingen and at the Credit Suisse PGA Championship from October 1st – 4th in Geneva.

Exact to the Birthday the Swiss PGA is proud to announce the foundation of the Swiss PGA Services GmbH:

With effect of January 1st 2013, the Swiss PGA is proud to announce the founding of the Swiss PGA Services GmbH. This is a strategic move successfully undertaken by some of our fellow PGAs in Europe. The GmbH will provide us with a platform to move forward within the Swiss golf industry. The goal is to assure the future development of the Swiss PGA, to strengthen the relations with our sponsors and partners and to meet the demands of today’s business world.

The GmbH consists of CEO Peter Schwager and President Bruno Griss from the Swiss PGA along with Irek Myskow from Sports Marketing Solutions, also a member of the Swiss PGA.

The core of the business will be corporate golf consulting, organisation of events and running tournaments.

We believe that such a strategic decision will help to further develop Golf in Switzerland and will reposition the Swiss PGA with it ́s new services department as a strong and competent partner in the Swiss market.

The Swiss PGA Services GmbH was founded on January 10th 2013, exactly 70 years to the day since the association was founded.

We are looking forward to kicking off the new structure in the coming season.
