With new indoor accommodations, golf management gets in full swing
The Professional Golf Management program started small with 20 students five years ago. Now, more than 100 students are a part of Eastern's accredited Professional Golf Association (PGA) program.
The golf program is different than the actual varsity sport. It concentrates, not only on the physical part of the sport, but the "behind the scenes" aspects of golf, like club repair, retail and marketing.
Director of the PGA Golf Management Program Kim Kincer joined the program when it was just a small outlet in the Combs Building on campus. It has since moved to the BTC building and sports classrooms. Students in the program also have access to a golf simulator and a state-of-the-art science and motion-putting lab.
