  • The Difference

    Core Golf Education students are job ready. You are tested on how well you can apply what you’ve learned. Not on how well you can memorize theory.

    Core Golf Education’s entrepreneurial and innovative approach to golf education can’t be found anywhere else in the United States.

    You will be trained to solve important problems for your employer while maintaining an awareness of industry expectations and requirements.

    No one else can prepare you for a golf career like Core Golf Education.

  • Requirements

    You don’t have to be a great golfer, but you do have to love the game and being around it. We’re not going to ask you for your handicap. We will ask you to commit to the program.

    You do need a high school diploma or equivalent, a willingness to learn, and a desire to step into a leadership role in the golf industry.

    If industry leadership doesn’t interest you, then Core Golf Education PGM Program is probably not the right place for you. However, if you do possess all of our requirements, then we are the best solution for your beginning your career.
