Golf Short Course

Course Description

Established in 1995 as part of the Business College Education Group, Golf College was the first Golf College in New Zealand that offered NZQA registered qualifications. (Due to the impact of recent COVID-19 virus outbreak, we have stopped accepting intakes for our NZQA registered Golf certificates and Diploma programmes. We now only accepting intakes for our short-term golf courses.)

Our programmes and teaching resources are continually being updated and we believe we have the best Golf Programmes in New Zealand. Unlike many programmes, our programs are 70% practical skills which will improve your game and 30 % theory.

Various golf courses will be played throughout the year, which may include Akarana, Chamberlain Park, Formosa, The Grange, Gulf Harbour, Helensville, Howick, Manukau, Maungakiekie, Murawai, Omaha, Peninsular, Pukekohe, Pupuke, Redwood Park, Remuera, South Head, Titirangi, Waipu, Whangaparoa and Whitford Park.

The golf students will be coached using the SNAG method and equipment. Each different aspect of golf, including putting, chipping, pitching and driving requires different SNAG equipment. Similarly, golfers will be required to use different clubs to suit the aspect of golf being covered in each session.


All golf equipment will be provided to students each week as part of the course. However, students are responsible for their own ball costs.
