Who We Are

The Little People’s Golf Championships Association is a 501 (c) (3) not-forprofit organization, made up of a Board of Directors and an Advisory Team of Volunteer men and women dedicated to providing positive competition for young golfers aged three (3) through eighteen (18) from all over the World, through the Pepsi Little People’s Golf Championships.

The Board of Directors is comprised of nine dedicated people, who receive direct input from its Advisory Team, each of whom serves as a Committee Chair or Member.
