2017 PPA National Tournament Schedule
We would like to say thank you to our generous sponsors for their continued support of the PPA. Putt-Putt franchise owners across the country who welcome PPA players with courses that are competition-ready, David McCollister of Southern Key Investments, the Putt-Putt Board of Directors and SafePark USA who have each made commitments to continue our search to find the World’s Greatest Putter. Their support allows the PPA to continue to conduct the high-level tournaments that we all enjoy.
Please be sure to support them the same way they support us.
Thanks to all of the putters that come out and play. Without your participation the PPA could not exist. We look forward to seeing you at the national, regional, and local PPA events this year.
