NEW - Media/Influencer Applications

Do you create golf and golf lifestyle content for your followers? Do they love inside access to all that’s new in golf?  We’re happy to introduce our complimentary influencer event badge for active golf content creators with an engaged following on an established social media platform who plan to create content and promote their appearance at the event. The Influencer badge allows access to ballroom exhibits and Summit networking events.

Who Qualifies:

  • Social Media Influencers who have a combined following of 100,000 followers* or more across Instagram, “X”, TikTok, Facebook or YouTube.
  • *If your follower count is less than 100,000, but your content hits the mark, we encourage you to still APPLY. We love creators with a following of all sizes and enjoy helping you grow your audience, there’s still an opportunity for you to be approved depending on the volume of applications we receive.
  • Previous posts must feature golf and golf lifestyle content.
  • Meme accounts and people who only repost other creators’ content should not apply.

Applying does not guarantee approval. You'll be notified if you have been approved or denied within 10 business days of when you submitted your application. If approved, additional information will be provided in your confirmation email and receipt.


Influencer badges are extended as a courtesy of PGA Shows. All PGA Show events are business-to-business events which means your badge allows admission to exhibits and special events with priority access given to golf industry professionals.

If approved, you must use the complimentary badge to capture content at the event to post across your social accounts and share with your followers.

  • The first post should let your followers know that the event is not open to the public (YOU are their inside access). We don’t want to disappoint your followers who are not qualified and try to attend.
  • Please don’t impede the priority business of the event.  Do not block access to an exhibit or interfere with business meetings in booths or on the range.
  • We encourage you to use #PGASummitFrisco and tag @PGAShow on “X” & Facebook; and @PGAGolfShows on Instagram as we often amplify attending influencer posts!

Each Influencer badge is issued individually. If you create content with a team (photographer, videographer, editor, etc.), each member of the crew must complete an application and be approved separately. PGA Shows reserves the right to limit the number of badges provided to any organization.

Badges are non-transferable and may not be sold or distributed to any other entity or party. Any individuals caught selling/distributing their badge will be disqualified from attending future PGA Show events. This is non-negotiable.

Application Process & Deadlines:

Registration for Influencer badges will remain open until July 26, unless we reach maximum capacity at an earlier date. We strongly recommend you apply early as once all Influencer badges are allocated, no more will be released and there will be no onsite influencer registration at PGA Show events.

Once your application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by the PGA Show team, and you will be notified of your status within 10 business days.

Every individual applying for a PGA Show Influencer badge may only apply once.

PGA Show badges are limited in nature and will not be issued to children, family, or guests.

If you’re approved, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a QR code for your complimentary Influencer badge. You can use your QR code to pick up your physical badge at the event entrance.

Decisions are final and cannot be appealed.
