About Us & History

Making the Game Better for Over 80 Years

The mission of the Gateway PGA, which is comprised of over 335 professionals at over 200 facilities in eastern and central Missouri and southern Illinois, is to abide by the above PGA Golf Professional’s Code of Ethics and to provide its members with meaningful playing, educational and financial opportunities while promoting golf at all levels in the geographical confines of the organization.

In 1916, the ‘Central Section’ was created as one of seven PGA Section offices. The Central Section included Arkansas, Utah, Colorado, Missouri, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Kansas. From the Central Section, the closest form of the current Section was born in 1931 and known as the ‘Eastern Missouri Section.’ In 1976, the Eastern Missouri Section became the ‘Gateway PGA Section’ with its current boundaries of Eastern and Central Missouri, and Southern Illinois.
