With an abundance of golf teaching certification programs available, there is an increased importance placed upon selecting the proper ones. Unfortunately, the perceived value of a certificate program is in decline, but should this put us off attending golf teaching certification programs on our quest to be better coaches? Absolutely not; it should, however, make us think harder about the golf teaching certification programs we do attend.

At GLT Golf, we recommend finding golf teaching certification programs that have scientific depth and provide practical, step-by-step, real world examples of how this information can be applied to enhance golfing skill.

GLT Golf’s Top 5 golf teaching certification programs are listed below.

Praxis:

Praxis means practice as distinguished from theory. It is an exciting collaboration between the University of Central Lancashire (UK), Golf Biodynamics and BMR Golf Management to provide a high-quality learning experience for existing and aspiring golf coaches. The golf teaching certification program is designed to include three levels of information about golf coaching, the first of which is an introduction to key elements of coaching and will include a mixture of theory and practical information and provide coaches with the knowledge and understanding of the mechanics, the golfer’s body and the golfer’s mind.
