How does Keiser University (KU) help its students improve their golf games?
Some would argue it’s because students enjoy the use of world-class technology right on campus. Others would say it’s the fact that students are surrounded by some of the best PGA-credentialed faculty and coaching staff in the country. Having its own College of Golf as part of the Keiser University Flagship Campus academic program, doesn’t hurt either.
The results speak for themselves. At KU’s Flagship Campus in West Palm Beach, the College of Golf’s club squad just won its second straight regional championship, and has qualified for the national tournament sponsored by the National Collegiate Club Golf Association (NCCGA).
Meanwhile, the Seahawk women’s team is the defending national champion and both the women’s and men’s golf teams are currently ranked number one in the nation in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) coaches polls.
On the KU Flagship Campus, the KU College of Golf offers a 1,500-square-foot indoor training facility, which includes a putting area, advanced launch monitor technology, V-1 and Swing Guru video analysis systems, an interactive golf simulator powered by Sports Coach Systems, a Motion Analysis Technology by TaylorMade (MAT-T), a 3-D swing analysis system, and a golf club repair lab equipped by Mitchell Golf Equipment.
Keiser University’s PGA-credentialed faculty are available to College of Golf students for individual and group instruction, and those same faculty are available to assist the Seahawk intercollegiate squads improve their golf skills.
In addition to the indoor facility, students also will have access to a 6 acre outdoor, on-campus golf range facility with 12 hitting stations, a 9,000 square foot putting green, and a 14,000 square foot chipping/pitching/bunker green. These facilities, under construction since July, will be completed before the end of 2015.
Keiser’s Associate of Science degree in Golf Management prepares students for a wide variety of positions in the golf industry. The program gives students the educational background and training to provide golf instruction, manage golf course operations, ensure proper maintenance of golf facilities and equipment, as well as how to incorporate the play of golf into the broader hospitality and recreation domain.
Likewise, the Bachelor of Science in Sport Management degree (with a concentration in Golf Management) focuses on the managerial and business aspects of a career in golf. The curriculum supports an expanded professional role for sports managers and graduates of associate degree programs in golf, hospitality, fitness, sports, recreation, and other related fields.
“As more parents and students discover the exciting education and golf programming we offer at Keiser University, it will only help us give back to the community, build relationships, and create opportunity for our students and alumni through the wonderful game of golf” said John McMurry, Keiser University Flagship Campus Vice President.
