CAMP HILL, Pa.—Brown Golf Management will partner with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) starting this fall to provide its Professional Golf Management (PGM) program students with real-world industry resources. This partnership (expands) career development opportunities for PGM students and elevates the program’s ability to prepare its future golf industry leaders.
Brown Golf Management will provide students with an inside look into golf club operations. They will learn about profitability through live financial reporting, budget development, schedule-leasing, and expense management tactics. Other topics will include advanced tee sheet management strategies and profitability analysis crucial to the principals of golf course management.
Students will have access to the latest technology and software used in the golf industry. This experience will provide aspiring leaders with insight into how technology impacts a golf club’s ability to create effective strategies that in turn drive profitability.
“This partnership is about providing an opportunity to upcoming golf management professionals,” said John Brown, CEO of Brown Golf Management. “It’s a chance for a rigid, stagnant business with a history of non-inclusion to advance by building opportunity channels for students of every background and ethnicity. We are excited to work with aspiring professionals that have dedicated themselves to learning our business and will be innovative future leaders.”
While access to Brown Golf’s industry professionals and management resources will aid in student development, another benefit is career opportunities for UMES graduates. Brown Golf will conduct mock interview sessions and help students develop cover letters and resumes to improve their chances of landing their first position in the golf industry. Internship and full-time positions will be available at Brown Golf’s network of facilities and will be posted to the university’s job boards for PGM students.
