Profession with prospects

Being a golf instructor means being part of a dynamic and constantly developing professional field with far-reaching prospects. The growing popularity of golf opens up numerous career opportunities, from teaching at prestigious golf clubs to specialising in youth training or golf psychology. The opportunity to work internationally and experience different golf cultures, as well as the need for continuous further training in technology and methodology, keep the profession exciting and future-orientated. Being a golf instructor is therefore not only a vocation that offers deep satisfaction through the development of players, but also a way to develop professionally and make a difference in golf.
