GCMA announce groundbreaking golf club management degree 

The BA (Hons) Golf Club Management, delivered by Cornwall College in association with the GCMA, will develop highly educated industry professionals

A brand new degree level qualification has been launched as part of the GCMA’s commitment to the continued professionalism of the golf club management industry.

The association is delighted to join forces with Cornwall College to deliver the BA (Hons) Golf Club Management, which aims to service the needs of the golf industry by developing highly educated industry professionals.

Colt Mackenzie McNair will also provide invaluable support and advice on the topics of personal development, career planning and work placements for students.

The degree will furnish the individual with an attractive future path where this acquired knowledge can be applied most effectively, and be rewarded with a fulfilling career that has so many lifestyle benefits. The first intake for the course, based at Lindfield Golf Club in Sussex, will start in September.

Golf club management has become widely recognised as an attractive profession, requiring a wide range of business management knowledge and technical knowledge on how to manage a golf facility.

As well as aspiring managers at the start of their golf club management journey, the three year course will also be suitable for existing managers looking to take their next career step and builds on the success of the L5 Diploma in Golf Club Management, delivered successfully in partnership with BIGGA and the PGA.

The association believes this innovative approach will give students the highest chance of success of getting their career in the golf industry off to a flying start.

GCMA CEO Tom Brooke said: “This is a massive step forward for golf club management and we, as the Golf Club Managers’ Association, are very proud of the part that we have played in presenting this to the golf industry. It underlines our commitment to education and personal development, not only for our members, but also the wider golfing community.”
