Gateway PGA Coronavirus Updates

Please Use The Following Resources

See below for news from the Section, PGA of America and government

The Gateway PGA Section will begin its 2020 tournament schedule on Monday, June 8th at The Legends for a Stroke Play Event. We’ve had to augment our tournament schedule in such a way that abides by the separate stay-at-home orders and dates. Our situation is unique because our Section boundaries include parts of the state of Missouri, state of Illinois, St. Louis County, St. Louis City and the surrounding counties. We will continue to be flexible as we adhere to state and county guidelines. While some communities may be able to reopen at a faster rate, others may need to continue restrictions to keep the virus from spreading. Thus, our schedule will be creative in nature.

Additionally, the PGA of America, White House and CDC have been working to develop proper guidelines for golf that align with the White House’s three phases of “Opening Up America Again.” Working with these guidelines will ensure the health and safety of our Members, staff and the facilities in which we operate. We will send out a document with comprehensive Gateway PGA tournament guidelines specific to COVID-19 in the coming weeks. Registration for all June & July events opens this Friday, May 1st in Golf Genius through www.gatewaypga.org. At this time, our immediate schedule will reflect the following.

NOTE: Because of the suspension of the Spring Meeting, all tournament program attendance requirements have been waived for the 2020 season.  The Section will continue to review its schedule and operations based on CDC, WHO and government guidance and communicate updates with you.

For the foreseeable future, the Gateway PGA Section staff will be working remotely. Should you need to reach any staff member, their remote contact information is listed below.
