The Private Professional Golf Story
The idea for PPG came together in 2012, when Derek Oakey created a golf experience previously unavailable in the market, bringing together tour players and guests in a relaxed atmosphere. Derek spent seven years playing professionally on tours all over the world. Through these experiences, he has developed relationships with tour players on all the major tours and has acquired a unique perspective on the game of golf.
The concept of PPG is to provide amateur golf enthusiasts with the opportunity to play alongside tour players in a relaxed setting, unlike any other event. We have taken the traditional "Wednesday Pro/Am" that everyone is accustomed to at a PGA Tour event and turned that into a private experience, away from the tour event. By establishing the perfect atmosphere for both the guests and the tour players, we have created the best possible golf experience.
