USGA is one of the world's foremost authorities on research, development and support of sustainable golf course management practices. It serves as a primary steward for the game's history and invests in the development of the game through the delivery of its services. Additionally, the USGA's Course Rating and Handicap systems are used on six continents in more than 50 countries. USGA's motivation for the project is to provide a better and more modern work space for staff, including more common space for collaboration and formal meeting space.
PFA partnered with McCarter & English LLP, First Republic Bank and Janney Montgomery Scott LLC to provide financing to the USGA. The bonds will provide additional capacity for the expansion of staff within the association and community.
