Wales Golf, in partnership with the other Home Unions, supported by the R&A, Golf Foundation and PGA, have teamed up to develop a new Club Activator Course to expand the workforce introducing new golfers to the game.
With golf in high demand and lots of people being new to the sport, this course comes at the perfect time. Ultimately the Activator programme will get more people playing the game and developing a lifelong passion for the game.
The training courses will give the Activators the skills to help set up, supervise and deliver non-technical games and activities to suit the audience, whether that’s juniors or adults, and it should be stressed their job won’t involve coaching, so you don’t have to be a great golfer to be an Activator.
The course is an interactive and practical session to provide attendees with the skills to support the PGA Coach deliver activity within the golf facility.
PGA Chief Executive Robert Maxfield commented: “PGA Members are the gatekeepers of the game of golf, they do an incredible job in helping hundreds and thousands of people to access the game through coaching. We want to help our members by providing them with a way to reach even more people, especially juniors. The Activator programme does just that”.
Thanks to the support of the R&A, for a limited time, we are able to offer this course for just £15, instead of £50.
Courses are three and a half hours long. Minimum age for attendance is 14 years old.
Attendees get a certificate, workbook, and games cards.
