Spring 2012 Commencement

Spring 2012 Hilton Head Graduates, PGCC Commencement
Congratulations to our Spring 2012 Graduates! Graduation ceremonies for all of the PGCC campuses were held last week to honor the students who have successfully completed their 16 month curriculum and earned their Specialized Associate's Degree in Professional Golf Management.

All PGCC graduates leave their respective campuses with a thorough understanding of the business of golf. As part of their educational career at PGCC, students engage in various areas of study to include marketing, business management, food and beverage, and golf course design, to name a few.  These areas of study help prepare golf college graduates for the professional golf industry and all that it entails.  Many students are quickly sought out by highly regarded golf courses across America and around the world for their breadth of knowledge that makes them uniquely qualified for various positions.

Although it is hard to say goodbye to these great men and women we have come to know so well, we wish them the best in their future endeavors!
