Today, Topgolf employs up to three golf professionals at each location. The company has pledged to cover the costs associated with each professional’s PGA dues and certification process.
“The introduction of Topgolf U is one of the most important things this company has ever done,” said Topgolf CEO Ken May. “The program symbolizes our commitment to spreading the love for the game of golf and making it more accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds. We look forward to expanding Topgolf U and other programs like our Summer Academy for kids, our offerings for high school golf teams, and more. This is just the beginning of the golf programming Topgolf plans to offer.”
