I think you are combining two concepts. You can join the PGA by being a professional in the Golf community. This can be a playing pro, teaching pro, club pro, etc. The PGA has a long list of types of pros and PGA members.

A "Tour Card", what you typically here about for Q school, or "keeping their card" is a level of exemption for playing on the PGA Tour. Not all PGA professionals are qualified to play on Tour (in fact, most aren't). To keep your card, a big requirement is to place in the top 150 on the money list (I think). You can earn your tour card by placing high enough in Q School, top 25 on the Nationwide money list, etc. You can get exemptions into tournaments based on your play, too. It's complicated to cover all the ways to get to play on tour. I think if you win the Masters, you get an exemption to play in it for the next 10 years as one example.

You can play as a pro without joining the PGA. You just declare "pro" in an open tournament. Go out on Monday and qualify. Make it to Thursday. make the cut. Make some money!
