Course summary

This programme is fully embedded in the golf industry and taught exclusively on golf resorts. It has been created after significant work directly with key industry members - in particular, the GCMA, and Colt Mackenzie, McNair (CMM) - identifying the best industry practice and reflecting the need for work-ready graduates of the highest calibre. Within the programme, you will develop an understanding of all aspects of golf-club management - delivered over a 22-week teaching profile, with at least ten additional weeks in working in the field during the summer term, or the end-of term breaks. Alongside this, students will be able to gain real hands-on experience within the golf club that they are based at (this work may be paid or unpaid), during term-time. During the winter term, the programme will move to southern Europe for a minimum of two weeks - allowing the students to understand the differing models and expectations of golf clubs with Europe.
