What is the PGA of America's PGA Golf Management University Program?

The PGA Golf Management Program is a four to five year structure educational program designed for aspiring PGA Professionals. The college curriculum is accredited by the PGA of America and includes extensive classroom studies, internship experience and player development providing students the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for the success on the golf industry. Since its inception, over 3,750 graduates are current PGA of America members.


Students attending a PGA Golf Management University Program can graduate with a baccalaureate degree in several majors including Marketing, Business Administration, Hospitality Management or Recreation, Park and Tourism Management.**

In additional to classroom studies, each student is required to complete approved internships totaling 16 months at golf industry locales.

These requirements satisfy a major portion of The PGA of America's membership requirements.
