PGTAA cites record demand for golf lessons, teachers

Professional Golf Teachers Association of America, noting increase in rounds played, extends its special offer through October

According to the PGTAA (Professional Golf Teachers Association of America) and the National Golf Foundation, despite spring shutdowns, 2020 golf rounds are outpacing 2019. Golf lessons and golf teachers are at an all-time high demand.

Golf Datatech reported that rounds played were up more than 20 percent in August compared with the same month last year. That followed a jump of 17 million rounds combined in June and July.The 20% jump was the largest recorded high-volume summer month since Golf Datatech began the monthly tracking in 2000.

Also, a 2 percent increase in play has been recorded in every State, and two of the game’s largest golf hubs, Florida and Arizona, play soared by 37 percent and 31 percent, respectively.

Golf lessons are in high demand resulting in an urgent demand for good teachers.

The PGTAA fits the bill.

Now in its 23rd year, the PGTAA’s certification is recognized worldwide from Australia to Zambia. PGTAA graduates are busy 6-10 hours a day, mainly made possible by the lack of available tee times, allowing golfers to get their “lesson fix” and opportunity to improve their game as well.

Additionally, the PGTAA has extended their Covid Special offer for the month of October.

Recognized as the world’s premier golf instructor certification organization, the PGTAA boasts a membership comprised of former PGA and LPGA Tour members, including major championship winners who have availed themselves of the PGTAA’s expertise.

If you are looking to change careers and become a golf teacher, see why you should consider the PGTAA to obtain your certified Class “A” PGTAA Master Teaching Professional designation.
