|About||The NZ Golf Teachers Federation allows individuals interested in a career in golf to be trained and qualified as certified golf teaching professionals.|
The New Zealand Golf Teachers Federation allows individuals interested in a career in golf to become trained and qualified as certified golf teaching professionals. Certification is available to anyone interested in teaching golf as a full time or part time profession. The NZGTF is an authentic member of the World Golf Teachers Federation (WGTF), which was established in 1993 and is the largest organization of golf teaching professionals in the world. There are over 25,000 qualified members of the World Golf Teachers Federation representing 42 countries.
NZGTF members can occupy all aspects of the golf teaching industry in New Zealand including positions as teaching professionals at driving ranges, indoor facilities, and entrepreneurs that have established their own private teaching businesses. As ambassadors of the sport, the common thread that ties NZGTF members together is a love for the game and a desire to add to its growth and popularity. Participants are taught how to teach every aspect of the game.
Getting certified to become an internationally accredited golf teacher is the first step to developing your career in the golf industry. The NZGTF offers two options for becoming a certified teacher. Both options provide the same outcome but differ in structure.
