Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) November 21, 2008
In keeping a focus on education, Golf Academy of America (GAA) hosted the Junior Golf Association of Arizona (JGAA) golf tournament on November 15, 2008 at the Lone Tree Golf Course. Juniors were given a campus tour of GAA Phoenix, met the professional staff, enjoyed lunch and played in a tournament with current GAA students.
“We hope our graduates can take away with them not only the skills they need to succeed in the golf industry, but also the traits-from perseverance to sportsmanship- we value in the game of golf and most importantly, in life,” says Tim Eberlein, PGA Master Professional and GAA director of golf.
The Golf Academy of America’s Arizona facility is state-of-the-art, offering students more than just a classroom. GAA’s 16-month program provides graduates with the education required, in golf instruction and golf business management, to get the golf job they so desire.
