Alumni of the PGA Golf Management ProgramSince our first graduating class in 2010, the SHSU PGA Golf Management Alumni have been quick to make their mark on the golf industry, placing themselves in traditional golf professional roles at top facilites in multiple PGA Sections. In addition, others have found positions as sales representatives and working in PGA Section offices.

Although the majority of our graduates do go onto traditional professional positions, we welcome you to inquire about our alumni and find out about the various career opportunities for PGA Golf Management graduates.
