London, UK, 4. May 2012 – The Golf College (www.thegolfcollege.com) is providing a tailored golf course for school leaver age pupils who want to start a career in professional golf. The golf school UK delivers a rounded education complete with academic qualifications in Sport Science – a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Sport and Exercise Science.
The Golf Academy also runs golf only courses and golf courses with GCSE retakes as Maths and English GCSE qualifications are essential to pupils who want to become professional golfers. The Golf Academy also runs an “employment qualification” course – a unique course designed to give would-be industry professionals the skills and education necessary to develop a career in golf retail, event management or personal coaching.
The golf school UK is staffed by a range of professionals and coaches including Denis Pugh (Colin Montgomerie’s coach), Paul Lyons (the former coach of the Sussex under 16 squad) and Matthew Ellis who has won both the Welsh PGA Championship and the Glenmuir British Professional Golf Championship.
The golf school UK also employs physical conditioning coaches, a sports psychologist and a specialty putting coach. Pupils enrolled in the full course will spend two years working on their game and the skills they need to develop around it to foster a proper career in the sport.
