It’s the students who take the first step toward higher education and it’s their love of the game and drive for excellence that sees them through to graduation and beyond.
Port St. Lucie, FL (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Receiving education in golf management is a great first step toward a rewarding career in golf, and two Port St. Lucie students took a giant leap forward with their recent graduation at Keiser University College of Golf. Students Daniel Champagne of Bristol, R.I., and Jon Kunick of Waunakee, WI, were recently honored for their successful completion of Keiser University College of Golf’s two-year Associate of Science degree in Golf Management.
The students received commemorative pins during a brief ceremony held at the college, and have already received positions through the Keiser University College of Golf Student Services. Kunick is an assistant professional at The PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and Champagne has a job waiting for him at the Hobe Sound Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla.
“We are very proud of Dan’s and Jon’s academic accomplishments,” says John McMurry, campus vice-president of Keiser University College of Golf. “At Keiser University College of Golf, we offer an exemplary golf education facility, world-class instructors and access to the PGA Center of Golf Learning and Performance, but it’s the students who take the first step toward higher education and it’s their love of the game and drive for excellence that sees them through to graduation and beyond.”
Keiser University’s Associate of Science degree in Golf Management prepares students for a variety of positions in the golf industry. In this Golf College program, students are prepared to provide golf instruction, manage golf course operations, ensure appropriate maintenance of golf facilities and equipment, as well as integrate the play of golf into the broader hospitality and recreation domain.
The Keiser University College of Golf features a 20,000-square-foot facility includes a 1,500-square-foot indoor putting green, advanced launch monitor technology, TaylorMade MAT-T swing analysis system, an interactive golf simulator provided by ForeGolf powered by SIRGUL, and a golf club repair lab equipped by Mitchell Golf Equipment.
