IrelandProGolf was set up in early 2004 to allow amateur golfers and
those wishing to learn about the game to source and get in touch with
PGA Professionals in their area.
Equally IrelandProGolf allows those PGA professionals and assistant
professionals to have their own page outlining their areas of expertise.
Throughout Ireland, there are a large number of golf clubs, driving
ranges and golf centres where we can practice and learn the game of
golf. Although a number of people are offering lessons with a variety
of backgrounds and qualifications, the overwhelming majority of professionals
in Ireland are PGA qualified.
That means that, in the case of the modern PGA pro, he or she at the
very least has completed either a three year Foundation Degree in Golf
Studies or BA Hons in Applied Golf Management Studies. In addition,
the golfer must have a handicap of 4 (6 for ladies) or better before
embarking on their studies.
So, in answer to the question, with the PGA, you are guaranteed highly
trained and educated golf professionals. This is why exclusively PGA
professionals and assistants are listed on IrelandproGolf.com
