Well, wonder no more. To answer your question, in the opinion of GLT Golf, yes, becoming a certified golf instructor is more than worth it.

At Game Like Training, we’ve found the benefits of being a certified golf instructor vastly outnumber the detriments. The knowledge and information made readily available through training courses for certified golf instructors can’t be overstated. While not all of the training courses will be as informative and thought provoking as others, courses supported by science and evidence should take precedent. After all, your time is valuable, and you don’t want to spend hours of it attending a certification program that is just going to present information you already know… or worse, information that isn’t backed by scientific research.

Most importantly, those considering whether to become a certified golf instructor should realize a few quick hours of a golf coach certification course work will not instantly make you a better coach. No amount of instruction or material can replace the benefits of hours of actual on-course coaching with another human being. It may be the 21st century, but person to person interaction is still vital in some situations, and golf coaching is on that list. Furthermore, by providing you with access to leading professionals, scientifically based information, and proven skills and tactics, completing the courses required to become a certified golf instructor unlocks unlimited potential for golf coaches.

So, are the time and financial obligations required to complete the coursework worth becoming a certified golf instructor? While there are certainly several factors that golf coaches should consider, the answer is yes, becoming a certified golf instructor is definitely worth it if you ask Game Like Training Golf.
