While it may be every aspiring golfer’s dream to play on the professional tour, in reality these opportunities only present themselves to the gifted few.
However, the international golf industry has experienced steady growth over the past decade and today employs thousands of golf professionals.
In 2011 eta College took on the challenge of becoming an accredited provider of the National Diploma in Professional Golf. Once accredited by our accreditation body, eta College sought approval from The PGA of SA to present the National Diploma under their license.
Now 5 years on and eta College has formed partnerships with leading golf organisations to establish 4 golf academies across South Africa, bringing quality golf education to young sports men and women from all walks of life.
