PGA College Curriculum Comes to Texas

The PGA of America's Professional Golf Management Program offers college students "a curriculum that provides a combination of golf and business-related subjects for aspiring members of the golf industry." Going through the program is one of the quickest and best ways for aspiring golf pros to enter the industry. The PGA/PGM is offered at 17 universities around the U.S., and now one of those universities is in Texas.

The PGA has announced that Sam Houston State University in Huntsville will begin offering the PGA/PGM program.

"The number of quality colleges and universities offering the PGA Professional Golf Management Program continues to grow, as we proceed forward with our goal to grow the game of golf," said PGA of America President Roger Warren. "Sam Houston State University will be a welcome addition to our list of universities which offer the PGM program and assists The PGA with growing the game."

The PGA of America endorses the Professional Golf Management Program's five-year college curriculum, with students serving 16 to 20 months of an on-course internship with PGA Professionals. Students at Sam Houston State University will graduate with a bachelor's degree in General Business Administration. After graduation, students are eligible for PGA membership, upon appropriate employment in the golf industry.
