Ready to tee up a career in your favourite sport?
As the manager or golf professional of a golf course, your duties will include keeping every aspect of the facility running smoothly and enjoyably for guests, while keeping things profitable for the company. You’ll be involved in ensuring the playability of the course is meeting customers’ expectations, food and beverage service is up to par, the pro shop is well stocked and merchandized, and staff are trained to provide top-notch service. You’ll organize events and activities, plan the marketing, and watch the budget, all at the same time.
You will learn all those skills and improve your game while training at a professional outdoor golf facility. Upon graduation, you’ll be ready to go to work, or go for a third year and get your Professional Golf Management diploma.
