Below are the 20 PGA accredited Professional Golf Management (PGM) Programs. For more info, click HERE.
It is a very rare exception, if at all, that a golfer can be a part of the accredited PGM programs and play on the golf team. The time demands are too much for both programs. The PGA accredited programs allow a graduate to come out of college and go straight to a managerial position or head-pro position.

There are some non-PGA accredited PGM programs where a recruit can play on the golf team. They won’t get their PGA Class A status and will have to go through the program after college. They can, however, pursue another major and minor in the PGM program. This is a great option if they want to play in college but aren’t interested in immediately becoming a Head Golf Pro or Golf Course Manager. They can pursue other opportunities in the golf business.
