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 NC State PGA Golf Management program intends for each student to benefit from a well-rounded college life experience.

The academic requirements will take PGA Golf Managment students through a variety of courses in many discipline areas including English, Math, Psychology, Business, and Parks, Recreation & Tourism 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 and PGA Golf Management faculty members. 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: Student Government, competitive club sports, intramural sports, Greek Life organizations, College of Natural Resources Ambassadors Program, Rho Phi Lambda – PRTM Honors Fraternity, and other University Honors programs. Students are also involved in many service learning (community service) activities.
