A week of learning outside the classroom

A week of learning outside the classroom

The Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship (AAC) is a tournament like no other, and while the golfers playing undoubtedly had an unbelievable experience, so did the many volunteers.

PGA Institute student Angelina Lau volunteered as a mobile scorer for the week at Royal Melbourne, and took away a lot of learning.

“Volunteering at the event at Royal Melbourne was a great experience. It was especially exciting to watch the golf’s future stars up close,” said Angelina.

Studying both the Diploma of Golf Management, and the Player Development Program, Angelina is well on her way to a successful career in golf.

At the PGA Institute Melbourne Campus, students have the opportunity to enter the Player Development Program each year.

This focuses on player improvement and game development for golfers across their one year of study with the PGA Institute. This program is undertaken in conjunction with the Diploma of Golf Management.

Angelina said her week walking the fairways with some of the world’s best amateurs was eye-opening.

“The experience has inspired me to keep improving on my golf,” she said.

The PGA Institute prepares its graduates for a career in the business and management of golf as an industry.

“I love studying at the PGA Institute as it is a world-recognised golf organisation,” said Angelina.

Upon completing her studies, Angelina plans on returning home to Hong Kong to work, and then hopes to potentially come back to the Australian golf industry.
