FYI: A new review of the GA of A posted recently. Moral of the story is.... don't get sucked into their scam trap.    As a former student of the GAA Myrtle beach I can tell you that it is a waste of money. I graduated with honors and a "Ribbon" in every available class. The GAA is a great scam. Charge students 30k for an education that means nothing in the golf industry. I am still employed as a golf pro but because the 2 years and 30k I spent on my education is NOT...
Wow that is really not a good sign. Then again, I don't shop at Dick's because they have a PGA pro in the golf shop. 
Eccos and Footjoys fit well for wide feet. 
Some more to add: For guys thinking about going to school to get into the golf industry, here are some regular, public, not for profit community colleges that offer an actual golf management degree that is transferrable to real colleges.   http://www.collegeofthedesert.edu/students/ap/Pages/golfmanagement.aspx  in Palm Springs, CA. There has to be over 100 golf courses around the school.    http://www.wwcc.edu/CMSX/main.php?module=department&deptcode=PGM Walla Walla,...
Is this a serious question? If so, it would have to have a broad base so it doesn't punch my greens!
Not mine, but my partner had a "bathroom accident" on the course in the middle of a tournament. Not a pleasant experience at all. Luckily there was a restroom nearby and he could tie a sweater around his waist. 
Golf is a game based on integrity and tradition, so if what you do on the course is not with integrity or somehow degrades tradition, then I'd be inclined to assert that breaking the rules in this way is really bad. 
 That's what I was thinking also. Now, can he compare his "school" to a legitimate university? I would like to see him try.  All things related to the education aside, many encounters I've had with students from these schools (Golf Academy of America or Pro Golfers Career College) include mentions of rampant drug use and abuse-- students using drugs on campus and on the golf course. I'm sorry, but if my sons or daughter ever wanted to get serious about playing golf or...
 True, but I was saying that simply getting a regular degree and working your way up is a better alternative than going to a for-profit. I agree that attending a PGM university is a good idea, not refuting that.
Even going to a traditional college without a PGM program would be a better idea than going to a for-profit. Get a part time job at a golf course while attending school, work your way up during the time you're in school and you'll have your 4-year degree and a bunch of experience working in golf. Besides, you don't need any sort of degree to wash carts and clean clubs or press buttons on a register and fold shirts.    If you're not of "college age," really think about...
