Professional Golf Management (PGM)

The goal of the PGM LLC is to encourage a sense of community among our students that will enhance and encourage their academic experience in the Professional Golf Management Program. Students will create relationships that they will carry with them, not only throughout their time here at Clemson, but also throughout their careers.

Students obtain specialized knowledge and preparation to be leaders in the expanding golf industry. The PGM curriculum provides an academic program that develops well-rounded, service-oriented golf professionals who can meet and respond to the personal as well as business management requirements of golf facilities. The combination of skills and knowledge acquired in the program augment the golf professional’s success as a manager and advocate for the game. First year or transfer students often live in the PGM LLC to enhance their experience in their PGM major.
