Become a volunteer coach

Support the delivery of coaching in your club by assisting a more qualified coach.

Routes to becoming a volunteer coach

Through The PGA’s training and education programmes, there are two routes to learn more about coaching.

Option 1

Go through the PGA’s Training Programme to become a PGA Professional. Coaching and Sports Science sit within a wider array of subject area that lead to becoming a PGA Professional.

Option 2

Start with the ASQ awarded Coaching Qualifications (L1 upwards) and become a licensed volunteer assistant coach, helping grow the game through your actions, whilst maintaining your amateur status (a requirement for playing amateur golf at club, county or national/international level).

The various stages are all mapped out below.
