Learn to teach golf... the profession of a lifetime®

The Nation's Largest Organization of Certified Golf Teaching Professionals.

A Typical Golf Certification Day

“Thanks for a great experience!” -Samuel Calderone, North Carolina

Our goals at certification courses are:

To ensure you are taught how to teach every facet of the game and to ensure that you enjoy the process. As a teaching professional, you will also want to have goals of a similar nature with your students. Ensure that your clients enjoy themselves and are taught the mechanics of the golf swing in a simplified, easy to understand manner.

From the opening orientation to the closing banquet, our teaching staff is there to help you become the best golf teaching professional that you can possibly be. All aspects of teaching golf are covered during your stay with us. This does not require that you be kept in the classroom all day long. Classroom theory is kept to a minimum each morning.

During the week the following topics are covered in detail:

Both Classroom Theory and Learning on the Golf Course

After the classroom theory each morning, participants then move outside to the practice facility where further focus is on learning to teach. Moreover, you have the opportunity to hit plenty of balls as well as become familiar with the golf course.

We usually break for lunch at noon and reconvene in one hour. Each day you have the opportunity to practice teach with your fellow students. In this scenario, we make it a point of never putting people on the spot or making them feel uncomfortable. For the most part, practice teaching is done one on one and not necessarily in a class type format.

Afternoon play on the golf course is scheduled after 2 pm with your fellow students. Your teaching professional is present with you until 3 pm. Weather and daylight permitting,  participants have the opportunity to play 18 holes per day.

All meals are on your own, however many participants choose to dine together.

The Playing Ability Test and Verbal Teaching Test take place on the last day. The multiple choice Written Rules Test is issued to you on the 3rd day after the rules talk is completed and turned in the following morning before class begins.
