“We enjoy this time of year when we welcome new students from around Australia and the world to the Gold Coast to study with PGA IGI,” said Christine Straw, PGA IGI Senior Manager.
“It is an exciting time for new students, who are beginning their study in the Australia, following their passion for the sport of golf and turning this passion in to a career.”
In 2018, the PGA IGI has welcomed students from Australia and around the world, including countries such as China, Vietnam, Singapore and New Caledonia. 2018 has also seen the first student commence study with PGA IGI from Argentina.
“We are proud to have welcomed our first ever student from Argentina to study with us in 2018,” explained Straw.
“The South American region is a growing area for the sport of golf and we look forward to working with new students from the region in to the future.”
Students have hit the ground running in 2018, with weekly IGI golf competitions underway alongside academic classes in the Diploma of Golf Management.
As Australia’s only Diploma of Golf Management, the qualification aims at providing students with a pathway to a career of working in the golf industry.
