The Arrigo Family Instrumental as Official Partner for over 30 years
From Tournament Title Sponsors to their Hall of Fame Legacy; PBCGA is Grateful for the Arrigo Brothers Impact
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fl. — Its been over 25 years since The Palm Beach County Golf Association announced an Official Partnership with The Arrigo Family.
“We are thankful to have had the Arrigo Family and The Arrigo Automotive Group join us as an Official Partner for so many years,” said Jordan Schneider, PBCGA executive director. “The Arrigo Brothers provided so much for our local golf community. When we say we wouldn’t be where we are today without the Arrigo’s we would likely be short 50 events, 30+ scholarships and a couple amazing guys!”
On behalf of the board of directors we would like to thank them family for partnering with PBCGA, and helping out in a major way, not only with providing sponsorship and scholarships for local students but participating and enjoying the association first hand. Many memories and stories to be told from all the years. The Arrigo’s have been a huge part of Palm Beach County Golf Association, and we are forever grateful.
The 42nd Four Ball Championship will be conducted May 5-7, 2023 at Bear Lakes Country Club. With the passing of the torch, the staple event will be retitled for our newest Title Sponsor.
Since its inception in 1976, the Palm Beach County Golf Association has been a cornerstone to the many excellent golfers residing in Palm Beach County.

Our purpose is two-fold: First, we conduct approximately 20+ tournaments per year. Our championships are the best of their kind anywhere and we strive to make them enjoyable for everyone. Second, we are committed to providing college scholarships to deserving and worthy students and to promoting amateur golf throughout the county. We are very proud of the fact that our efforts have made a difference in the lives of many area students.

PBCGA Scholarship Fund
Since 1976, the Palm Beach County Golf Association has awarded over $460,000 to 185+ area college students to help with their college education. These scholarships have helped students pay for tuition, books and other fees so that they could be more dedicated to their studies.
Since 2010, the PBCGA has partnered with Take Stock in Children – Palm Beach County to provide tuition scholarships to attend the Florida state college of their choice. Take Stock in Children is a statewide mentoring/scholarship program. The program enrolls middle school, low-income students and helps them succeed by providing college and vocational scholarships, volunteer mentors, student advocates, early intervention and long-term support.
For more than 47 years, the PBCGA and local South Florida businesses have partnered to provide the highest level of golf services to the Palm Beach County area. Continued support from local organizations such as the Arrigo Family, Tiger Woods Ventures, Jack & Barbara Nicklaus, Morell Studios, Palm Beach Kennel Club, Tire Kingdom, PGA TOUR and The Honda Classic is a testament to the longstanding support of PBCGA’s mission to give back. Assistance from local businesses, alumni and friends allows the PBCGA to dedicate more time and resources to programs that provide college scholarships to deserving and worthy students in Palm Beach County.
