The original and core element of PGAU is providing complete introduction to golf classes taught by PGA Professionals.

  • To learn and apply golf terminology, rules, and etiquette
  • To play a 9-hole round of golf and in a golf scramble
  • To use safety precautions on the practice area and golf course
  • To create the desire and skills so students can become avid golfers

Instruction Program Criteria:

  • Offer a minimum of two classes per semester (flexible for schools operating on quarters)
  • Maintain ten students to one PGA Professional ratio for instruction
  • Class size should range from a minimum of 10 to a maximum of 20 students.
