Edwin Watts Golf Academy
Established in 1998, Edwin Watts Golf Academy's (EWGA) mission then was the same as our mission today: To improve the skill level to which our game is played, one student at a time, by teaching golfers how to practice. Our motto is, "Learn to Practice; Love to Play." Today, EWGA has 22 golf schools across eight states with over 20,000 active students.
Headquartered outside Denver, GolfTEC leads the nation as the largest golf instruction company, providing more than 25 percent of all golf lessons taught annually in the United States. Currently, we have 172 locations across the United States, Canada, Japan, and South Korea. Five of our U.S. locations were named to Golf Digest's Top 100 Club Fitters. In 2004, GolfTEC partnered with Golfsmith, the nation's largest golf retailer, and now almost 80 percent of Golfsmith locations host a GolfTEC Improvement Center. If you're interested in working for a dynamic, growing company with room for advancement and an instruction-based environment, then GolfTEC is the place for you.
Owners and operators of golf courses throughout the U.S. and the world -- from those who run 9-hole facilities in rural locations to owners of the largest golf course portfolios in the most popular golf destinations -- look to the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) as a valuable source for information and education, and an advocate for their best interests.
