Met PGA Compensation Survey
We have restructured our Met PGA Compensation Survey to a digital platform for ease of use, updating some of the terminology in the process. As you will see, we are also gathering data about golf operations budget and total rounds to create some comparables regarding service levels.

PGA Members earn 1 PDR for completing the survey and an additional 1 PDR for opting into the PGA of America survey.
