You might know the game of golf, but do you know the business of golf? Humber’s Professional Golf Management diploma program helps you improve your acumen in the clubhouse and beyond. Our program covers everything from sport psychology and turf management to marketing to finance. Golf is one of the fastest growing sports industries worldwide. With more than 2,500 facilities in Canada, it’s one of the fastest growing Canadian industries of any kind. So, there’s a need for talented professional golf managers who know the game on and off the course. Golf facilities and sports apparel companies require business-minded golfers with a deep understanding of golf culture who can manage courses, pro shops, tournaments, special events, and day-to-day business operations. Your tasks could range from teaching lessons to developing marketing strategies for golf equipment and apparel. The Professional Golf Management diploma program helps you step up to the challenge.
Your passion for golf has already gotten you here, now let it take you into an incredible career in the business side of the game. Our students will learn:
Students complete two paid internships combining classroom study with practical work experience. Each lasts eight to 24 weeks and takes place from April to October, following semester two and semester four. Students will be required to record the completion of specified golf industry tasks, duties and skills in an internship journal.
Students are responsible for finding their own placement; however, Humber is actively involved in the golf industry and hosts a job fair each December to assist students in securing their placement.
Graduates of Humber’s Professional Golf Management program leave equipped with a strong business understanding, and possibly a stronger golf swing.
