The following email was sent yesterday, just wanted to pass along to everyone. This is intended for both boys and girls. Brochure is attached.
Please share this email with your high school players and any other golfer you think might want golf as a career.
This is an initial email introducing New Mexico State University to you and your high school players. If you do not want to continue to receive updates from NMSU and our PGA Golf Management Program, simply email me back and ask to be removed. With that said, we are hoping you see the value we have to offer to you and your players. We realize that most high school boys and girls have goals to play college golf. We were the third university (in 1987) to be accredited by the PGA of America to offer this degree. We have graduated over 700 alumni, most are current PGA golf professionals in the golf industry.
We understand that going to college is a huge decision in a young person’s life, and choosing where to go to school is just as important. We here at theNew Mexico State University PGA Golf Management Program would like to equip you and your students with the information needed to assist in this process.
Offering a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing, with a Specialization in PGA Golf Management, our program enjoys a rich history of industry support and alumni success. With over 25 years of experience in education, job placement (100% placement), and player development, we are confident in our ability to educate and train tomorrow’s industry leaders. NMSU PGA Golf Management students will have the opportunity to work in industry related positions that enhance their college and PGA PGM Education.
Students will complete 16 months of internship under the supervision of Class “A” Professionals at different golf facilities, which include golf courses, PGA or LPGA Headquarters, PGA Section Offices, and other employment opportunities within the golf industry. In addition to the course work and internship experiences, students will complete the entire PGA PGM Educational Program (Levels 1-3) while attending NMSU. Students will also complete the PGA Playing Ability Test (PAT) while enrolled at NMSU.
Also, please note that NMSU is one of the few PGA Golf Management Universities that allow students in the program to be considered for theMen’s or Women’s Golf Team.
Upon completion of all the required course work, 16 months of internship, all three levels of the PGA PGM Educational Program, the PAT, and gaining eligible employment, students are eligible to receive PGA Membership.
*****Please be sure to reference the SCHOLARSHIPS available to incoming students that would allow them the opportunity for in-state tuition rates right away.
We are still accepting applications for the Fall 2016 semester. Please help us educate tomorrow’s golf industry leaders by sharing this information with your players and any other golf enthusiasts.
If you have read this far you seem to like what we have to offer. Feel free to email or call me anytime to discuss our Program. Good luck this coming season!
