The PPG Concept
The Private Professional Golf Story
The idea for PPG came together in 2012, when touring professional Derek Oakey looked to create a golf experience previously unavailable in the market. Derek spent the majority of the past seven years playing on professional tours all over the world, and has developed a unique perspective on the game of golf.
The concept of PPG is to provide amateur golf enthusiasts with the opportunity to improve their game while playing a round of golf alongside a touring professional. Our experience at PPG provides the highest standards in venue selection by working closely with luxury resorts and exclusive private golf clubs. Private Professional Golf's network of professional golfers are able to provide an unique golf experience to you and your guests.
Private Professional Golf is based in Atlanta, Georgia but has no boundaries for events. We can provide our unique golf experience and services at locations worldwide.
Playing Golf with a Touring Professionals
There are numerous opportunites every year to play in a pro/am with the major professional golf tours around the world but they are are only where the event is that week and not easily accessible. Occasionally, you may even get paired with a tour pro that has no desire to play with your group that day. This is where Private Professional Golf can provide the right experience. Even the most attentive touring professional in a Wednesday Pro/Am can not be solely focused on their playing partners since they have to play for their career the next day. Our format that takes the pro/am away from the event allows the touring professionals to spend the quality time deserving to the group.
When have you teed it up with a touring professional? Chances are, the answer is never. Our professionals have played all over the world on some of the most recognizable tours, including the PGA Tour, European Tour, Web.com Tour (formerly Nationwide), Asian Tour, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour Latinoamerica, and Australasian Tour. We use our worldwide playing experience to provide you and your guests with unique insight into the game of golf. For this reason, a day on the course with one of our touring professionals can be more beneficial to your golf game than multiple lessons on the driving range.
Exclusive Private Clubs
Many of the most well-manicured golf courses are private, and without the extended hand of a member, access to these facilities is restricted. Through PPG’s connections at high-end private clubs, we are able to make this accessible to you. The clubs in our network are the home courses for many touring professionals, and have hosted many top professional and amateur tournaments. Your golf experience at our luxurious member courses will be unforgettable.
