Information for PGA Professionals
The PGA, on behalf of the sport of golf, leads on the development of coach education and training. A full review of the existing coach education structure, following guidance from the quality standards of the UK Coaching Certificate, has lead to the establishment of a new, coach-centred education system that meets the needs of coaches and, ultimately, players.
This exciting and innovative pathway begins with the Level 1 and 2 coaching qualifications; progresses through the Foundation Degree in Professional Golf or the Applied Golf Management Studies Degree towards the PGA Level 3 qualification (incorporating the Advanced Certificate in Golf Coaching); leading through the Postgraduate Diploma in Coaching to the Level 4 qualification; with the potential to culminate in a full Masters Degree in coaching following completion of a relevant thesis.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Sport Coaching provides the learning programme for PGA Professionals seeking to obtain a Level 4 Certificate in Coaching Golf. To be awarded the new Level 4 Certificate in Coaching Golf, individuals will need to have achieved the new Level 3 Certificate in Coaching Golf, successfully completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Sport Coaching and submit a coaching application to the PGA.
For full details of the new Level 4 Certificate in Coaching Golf, the pathway towards this qualification, how existing PGA Members can access the qualifications and information on how, and where, the new qualification will be delivered, see the PGA Member Education website,
You will be required to be a qualified coach with an award recognised by their national governing body, normally at Level 2 of the UKCC or its equivalent. You will also be expected to regularly coach a minimum of three hours per week whilst on the programme.
We also encourage applications from coaches who do not have prior experience of higher education as well as those with first degrees.
