Online Golf Management Certificate

As noted in the recent NAGA study, golf in Canada is an $11.3 billion industry and one that will continue to grow rapidly into the foreseeable future, a trend which will add significantly to the current number of 2,000+ clubs in the country. In addition, many existing golf club managers face imminent retirement, so new, well trained managers with post secondary golf management credentials are in high demand.

That's where Selkirk College comes in. As one of Canada's pre-eminent publicly accredited golf management colleges, Selkirk last year launched Golf Club Operations Online Certificate Program. In the coming decades, it is estimated that 80% of high-paying jobs will require a college diploma or university degree, so preparation now can immeasurably boost golf industry career potential. Selkirk College can help you plan and achieve that golf management career path faster and more cost effectively thanks to innovations in our golf management program.

Thanks to the flexible online delivery format, students no longer need to relocate to a campus to acquire needed golf management knowledge and skills and they can pursue studies in the off season given that Selkirk’s online offerings take place over two semesters, one starting Nov. 1, the other Feb. 1.

Students can enroll for single courses or work, over time, toward the comprehensive 10-course certificate. GCOOL offerings can lead to credentials ranging from certificates, post-diploma certifications, and even a full diploma.

Courses beginning Nov. 1, 2009 include:

  • Overview of Golf Operations
  • Food and Beverage Controls
  • Golf Shop Operations
  • Golf Club Marketing
  • Turfgrass Management
  • Human Resources for Golf Clubs
  • Leadership for Golf Clubs
