Strategic Partnerships: Yeah, We’ve Got Connections
Golf Academy of America's Career Services team has over 40 years of relationship-building with some of the world's best-known golf companies. It's their job to help guide you through your time at Golf Academy of America and point you in the direction of the best people to know, whether for an informational interview with Bridgestone Golf, a networking event with the National Golf Course Owners Association or an internship with PGA Tour Superstore.
Through our partnerships with these and other companies and organizations, we give our students a leg up when it comes time to nail down that first golf industry job.
Founded in 1931 by Shojiro Ishibashi, Bridgestone has always been guided by the philosophy of our founder to "Serve Society with Superior Quality." Over the years, the pursuit of superior quality has resulted in Bridgestone becoming the global market leader in the rubber industry and in polymer science technologies.
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.
