PGA Seniors Championship

PGA VendorMatch applications for the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship at Southern Hills in Tulsa are now open at PGAVendorInclusion.org through Oct. 16, 2020 

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (Sept. 22, 2020) – The PGA of America is encouraging diverse and locally owned vendors to provide sourcing in support of the 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, May 25-30, 2021.

Minority-, women-, LGBT-, disabled-, Veteran-, and locally-owned businesses are invited to participate in PGA VendorMatch. Companies can register to potentially interview with larger, direct vendors (known as prime or Tier 1 vendors) at PGAVendorInclusion.org through Oct. 16, 2020.

“It’s important for the PGA of America to come alongside each of our host cities,” said PGA of America Chief Championships Officer Kerry Haigh. “This year’s PGA VendorMatch opportunity will enhance our ability to provide an outstanding experience through our championship operations, while positively impacting the Tulsa and Oklahoma economies.”

Golf is an $84 billion industry, and events like the Kitchenaid Senior PGA Championship generate substantial entertainment and tourism dollars for host cities and surrounding areas. The PGA is committed to building a supply chain representative of America’s population.

“I am delighted that we are expanding PGA VendorMatch to the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship and bringing economic opportunities to diverse-owned businesses in the Sooner State,” said PGA of America Chief People Officer Sandy Cross. “Next year, we will honor one of the core tenets of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre Centennial Commission by promoting local diverse entrepreneurship through PGA VendorMatch.”

A variety of services are needed, such as food products, temporary housing, florals and labor. A full listing of needs is featured on the website.

Companies interested in registering should visit PGAVendorInclusion.org. All registrations must be received by Oct. 16, 2020, to be considered.
