Are you ready to take your game to the next level? Be careful how you respond because we’ll hold you to it. Training and learning to compete as a tournament golf professional is no mean feat. It requires drive, determination, application and most of all effort and commitment from you. Here at Tournament Golf College (TGC) we will prepare you mentally, physically, tactically, technically, personally and academically for the challenges that lie ahead.
At TGC our philosophy is to enjoy the journey, to not just work hard, but work smart and become a disciplined, solution-based thinker: a key attribute for all top players. Learn how we break the game of golf down into performance segments, and work on solutions in many areas to make many small improvements. Learn more about what affects performance so you can take that all important responsibility for your own game. With your efforts, discipline and open mind we are a very powerful tool to help you achieve and maximise your potential.
The BSc (Hons) Tournament Golf is a one year programme of study with winter training in Portugal during the second semester. The taught programme runs from September until the end of March, finishing in time for the start of the golf season. You can expect to work at weekends, some evenings and have independent study during the playing season. The first semester is in the UK at St Mellion International Resort and the second in Portugal at Oceanico Golf.
The programme prides itself on its relationships with industry and as such the opportunities for academic study and game play are extensive. The fantastic facilities provide a golfing environment second to none. For instance, over the past two years students have been enrolled onto the Algarve Professional Golf Tour and have competed with professionals. A number of our students have undertaken work placements at the prestigious Saadiyat Golf Resort, Dubai.
This programme can also be studied as a one year top-up where you will complete year 3 only.
