History:

Established in 1974 as one of the 41 Sections within the Professional Golfers Association of America, headquartered in Frisco, Texas, the Sun Country Section PGA proudly represents the state of New Mexico and El Paso County, Texas. With a membership exceeding 200 dedicated professionals, our Section has played a pivotal role in shaping the golf landscape.

The Sun Country PGA Junior Tour, a cornerstone of our legacy, has seen the likes of PGA Tour luminaries such as Notah Begay, Brad and Bart Bryant, Kent Jones, and the 2002 PGA Champion, Rich Beem, honing their skills. Additionally, celebrated LPGA tour players Kristi Albers, Nancy Lopez, and Rosie Jones have graced the Sun Country PGA Junior Tour.

In a groundbreaking move in 2009, our Section collaborated with the Sun Country Amateur Golf Association to acquire the Sun Country Golf House. This multifaceted facility, situated in Rio Rancho just north of Albuquerque, houses not only the Sun Country Junior Golf Foundation and the Rio Grande Golf Course Superintendents' Association but also stands as the authoritative hub for golf in New Mexico and West Texas. The Golf House serves as a testament to our commitment to advancing the sport at every level.
