The Best Players Need the Best People.
For more than 50 years, the PGA TOUR has been a showcase for the world's finest players, organizing premier golf tournaments that have collectively raised an impressive $3.64 billion for charitable causes.
Now, we're on the lookout for passionate and talented individuals eager to contribute to the next exciting chapter in our rich history. Just three years after unveiling our 187,000 square foot Global Headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, we're expanding with the addition of a second building to accommodate our growing business and the surging popularity of our sport.
Introducing PGA TOUR STUDIOS, a cutting-edge media facility spanning three floors and 165,000 square feet. Opening its doors in January 2025, the facility will house eight spacious production control rooms, eight audio control rooms, and versatile studios. With a five-fold expansion in production capabilities, we're gearing up to strengthen our broadcast engineering team. This team will play a crucial role in supporting PGA TOUR LIVE on ESPN+, PGA TOUR international feed, PGA TOUR Champions and Korn Ferry telecasts, original programming, digital content, creative design and more.
This is an unprecedented opportunity to propel your career to new heights with the PGA TOUR.
