The A2LA Putting Green Laboratory Accreditation Program (PUG) is designed to meet the requirements of the United States Golf Association (USGA).
The USGA requires testing laboratories to be accredited by A2LA to make the complicated task of evaluating and recognizing qualified testing laboratories easier.
A2LA provides a thorough and balanced assessment that coordinates program requirements and A2LA requirements to provide overall accreditation of an organization with minimum disruption to testing laboratory operations.
This specialty program is covered under the A2LA geotechnical field of testing.
