PGC was started as a think-tank experiment in effort to break down the barriers and prior stigmas of golf in hopes to make it more accessible and appealing to all. Their mission statement is simple: “to bring like-minded passions together, while contributing to the modern evolution of the game. We consider the state of California our stomping grounds, and welcome those who are interested in the journey; a diverse club pushing the norms of the pastime we love.”

What makes this a golf “collective”? Everyone who is a member has an equal share. Everyone’s experience is designed to be similar. Their goal is to rid the game of the outdated stigma’s, increase the number of people who golf, and make sure we leave golf better than we found it. Started by the founder of Back Tee Supply Co., the collective hosts tournament golf once a month, as well as random group outings, contests, and skins games throughout the year.
Redefining the Modern Golf Club
The Golf Club Ethos
There's no better way to meet like-minded golfers and forge new friendships than at a club tournament. Nobody wants to golf alone–now you don't have to.
Hit and giggle golf passes the time—but tournaments challenge your game and make your round a lot more fun. Hell, you can even win some prizes with your 18 handicap!
Meet: Jimmy Tropicana
Barber and Master Lee Trevino Impersonator
In 2019, Jimmy Ruiz (aka Jimmy Tropicana) opened a barbershop in Glendora. He’d been a golfer for many years, and found himself constantly recruiting for the next weekend’s foursome. Tropicana Golf Club and Barber Shop, he recognized, would be the perfect location to bring both passions together.
By combining the barbershop with a mixed-use golf space — which included a putting green and a full-size simulator — he could find plenty of potential playing partners, and plenty of golfers who needed a haircut. READ MORE
