What We Do

What We Do

As stewards of the game, the USGA invests its time and resources in game-changing work that connects golfers, supports golf facilities and engages the worldwide golf community. 

Uniquely positioned to both serve and advance the game, our impact can be seen in the people, places and programs that have directly benefited from USGA research, education, technology, data, historic preservation and our drive to open doors towards a more inclusive game.
