NC State’s PGA Golf Management Program is one of 18 PGA accredited university programs nationwide. The curriculum provides students the opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills necessary for success in the golf industry via extensive classroom studies and internship experience. Students earn a college degree and obtain membership to the PGA of America upon graduation.

The academic requirements will take PGA Golf Management students through a variety of courses in different discipline areas including Business, Parks, Recreation & Tourism Management, and specified PGA GM topics (i.e. Business Planning, Teaching & Club Fitting, Merchandising, Tournament Operations, Customer Relations, Turfgrass Management, & Food & Beverage Management…see curriculum).

Students also complete 16 months of internship/co-op work experience at approved golf facilities under the direction of Class A PGA Professionals. The goal is to provide students with the best possible hands-on experience in a variety of locations.

PGA Golf Management students are active participants in many activities and organizations across campus including, but not limited to: PGM Ambassadors, College of Natural Resources Ambassadors Program, Student Government, University Honors programs, competitive club sports, intramural sports, Greek Life organizations, etc. Students are also involved in many service learning activities.
