What Employers Are Saying

Golf Academy of America graduates work all over the country at some of the best golf clubs, courses and pro shops in the industry. Here's what a few employers had to say about hiring and working with Golf Academy of America grads:

"Golf Academy of America graduates are the only ones I'll hire. The number one reason is they're instructed to be professionals. They have all the basic training we need and they come in for their interviews prepared. You can't go wrong with GAA graduates."

"I have a good respect for the base knowledge of Golf Academy of America graduates. They tend to have a little bit of tournament experience and a good start going in in most areas."

Christa Bodensteiner, PGA. Litchfield Country Club. Pawleys Island, South Carolina

"We have hired several GAA graduates and are really pleased with their customer service skills. We're in a resort area and customer service is really important."

Randy Broughton, PGA. Man O'War Golf Course. Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

"We have been very pleased with our experience hiring Golf Academy of America graduates. We're open May through October – we're a seasonal club. We prefer to hire GAA students because in May the Academy guys have just graduated and are ready to start their first jobs. They seem to be doing a good job training them for day one work."

Allen Chandler, PGA. Highlands Falls Country Club. Highlands, North Carolina

"I've hired seven Golf Academy of America graduates. My current co-manager is a GAA graduate. Golf Academy of America graduates have the skill sets that can make them successful in the industry more quickly than other graduates. We're a big believer in the Academy

Alan Lebarts. PGA Tour Super Store. Irvine, California
