Finish Ahead of Par
The B.S. in PGA Golf Management is designed to provide the skill and knowledge base a future golf professional needs to succeed in a variety of positions in the industry.
The PGA Golf Management (PGM) program is a 4 to 4 1/2 year structured academic program for aspiring PGA Professionals. Florida Gulf Coast University is one of only 17 schools nationally accredited by the PGA, and the only one in the state of Florida.
PGA Golf Management is a specialized admissions program. Not all students who meet the selection criteria are admitted into this major. The selection process is competitive and space is limited in each incoming class. For consideration, the university application and PGM handicap verification form (12 or less handicap REQUIRED) must be submitted by December 1st.
A primary requirement for students is the completion of 16 months paid internship under the direction of the PGM Internship Director. These work experiences can occur in diverse golf industry settings throughout the country. Some of the areas of study in the program include: business planning, turfgrass management, golf facility operations, golf merchandising, human resources management and three distinct golf instruction classes focused on teaching the game, club-fitting, using state-of the-art instructional technology and developing a teaching business. Students completing the Florida Gulf Coast University PGM Program will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in PGA Golf Management. Upon graduation and securing eligible full-time employment, students can be elected to Class A PGA Membership.
Located in southwest Florida, the FGCU PGM program boasts one of the most desired geographical locations in the country with over 135 courses within an hour of campus. It also serves a local industry employment need. FGCU PGM students have the opportunity to work part-time, intern, and play at some of the most exclusive facilities in the country. Students benefit from 300+ local PGA professionals, many of which, provide formal mentorship and lend their expertise in the classroom.
