The New Zealand Golf Teachers Federation (NZGTF) provides a platform in which you can turn your passion for golf into your profession.
NZGTF trains and qualifies individuals as golf teaching professionals that can teach anywhere in the world. We are dedicated to fostering and supporting the growth of amateur playing in New Zealand by producing quality teachers who can pass their skills and knowledge further afield, locally and internationally. Areas of emphasis are based on communication skills as well as technical knowledge and playing ability.
You may be just out of high school, semi-retired or somewhere in-between. There is an opportunity for everyone to live their dream and continue to receive ongoing support through our graduate membership programme.
Certification is available to anyone interested in teaching golf full-time or part-time. We are a full member of the World Golf Teachers Federation (WGTF), the largest organisation of golf teaching professionals in the world with over 25,000 qualified members representing 42 countries.
Graduates occupy all aspects of the industry including positions teaching at driving ranges, and indoor facilities and some establish their own private teaching businesses. Candidates receive every opportunity to develop their teaching skills and analysis as well as ample time to pass the PAT.
Candidates must pass every aspect of the course to graduate with the opportunity to resit any areas they may not have passed, at the next NZGTF course at no extra cost.
