Relationship with American Golf benefiting students

Relationship with American Golf benefiting students

The Lee Westwood Golf School is based at High Legh Park Golf Club, which is also the location of the american golf - National Golf Academy. American Golf are one of the largest chain of golf retail shops in the UK. Therefore, it seemed perfectly sensible to form a relationship.

As such, our Cheshire students recently attended a taster day at the american golf head office in Warrington, where they were educated on the requirements and what life would be like as an american golf employee.

Following on from this training, we have had a number of students approach american golf in regards to employment, and we now have just under 20% of our current student cohort being contracted to work at american golf outlets around the UK. 

The students are working part-time, fitting it in around their education and/or golf training days at the school. What a fantastic opportunity for our students to be given a pathway into the golf industry, where they can gain valuable experience, and earn some money to help fund their golfing ambitions - a win/win for everybody!

American Golf have also kindly assisted a number of students with their 2-week work experience placements, which they are required to do as part of their BTEC in Sport qualification.

Harry (pictured) who is a Cheshire student completed his work experience at the american golf store at High Legh Park Golf Club, said "I have really enjoyed the experience and chatting to customers about their golf. American Golf have involved me in the day to day activities, and I have also learnt about club-fitting. It has been a great opportunity for me to gain an insight into working within the golf industry".

This initiative is to be replicated at our Lee Westwood Golf School in Essex, as we look to grow this project further.
