Become a Golf teacher

Do you dream of not only living your passion for golf, but also sharing it with others? The Swiss PGA Apprentice program offers exactly this opportunity. This three-year professional training program is open to anyone who meets the requirements and enjoys passing on their knowledge and enthusiasm for the game.


About the Swiss PGA Apprenticeship

The PGA Apprentice program is designed as a dual system that includes both on-the-job and off-the-job components. This system offers a unique combination of practical experience and theoretical learning, which enables the prospective golf instructors to immerse themselves in the world of golf.

During the company-based phase, trainees work directly in golf clubs and with recognised golf instructors. Here they learn to put their theoretical knowledge into practice, teach under supervision and gain valuable experience in dealing with golf students of different levels.

The inter-company component of the training takes place during the course days of the respective modules. Here, trainees deepen their understanding of the technique and theory of golf, learn teaching methods, the psychology of coaching and gain insights into the administration and organisation of golf courses.


A rewarding career

After successfully completing the training programme, the new PGA golf instructors have a wide range of career opportunities. They can work as golf instructors in clubs and academies, offer individual coaching or specialise in specific areas such as youth training, competitive sport or golf course management.

What's more, the role of PGA golf instructor is one of the most satisfying in the sport. You have the opportunity to teach people of all ages and abilities, help them improve their game and guide them on their golfing journey. It's a career that requires not only expertise, but also passion and dedication.
