TGC degree programmes have been designed to provide an understanding of the key principles and sport science concepts of Tournament Golf. In addition they will develop business acumen, thereby catering for a potential future career as a self-employed tournament golf professional, or potentially a golf focused business career. Our 2 year programme will earn you a Foundation Science Degree - FdSc Tournament Golf, and our 3 year programme is a BSc (Hons) degree.
TGC provides an opportunity for elite amateur golfers to apply scientific and business management principles to applied practice, enabling you to plan your training, predict the outcomes of your actions and generate policy and management initiatives. In addition, TGC provides all students with a range of practical skills and competencies relevant to a career in tournament golf and beyond.
TGC operates a split programme in the UK and Portugal. This provides greater independence to students, who are exposed to more tournament competitions and opportunities to train at some of the best facilities in Europe in warmer climes during term 2 after a learning driven pre-season in term 1.
These modules are designed to create solid foundation knowledge and principles in the first year, which is then built on, expanded and developed through years 2 and 3. Developing both transferable academic skills as well as practically applying knowledge is a key focus of everything we do at TGC.
