The PGA has designed and developed simulation interventions to enable PGA Professionals to understand real world golf situations aligned with a primary focus on improving marketing and sales at a golf facility. 

The simulation of real-world scenarios has long been used effectively and strategically as a method for business training. Presenting learners with situations that resemble ones they might be confronted with is what constitutes experiential learning. Participants can be expected to:


  • better retain learned information
  • learn immediately how to apply that information to the real challenges they will face in the workplace
  • learn what kinds of challenges they are preparing to face
  • engage creatively with the learning process

Presenters will be Dawes Marlatt & Todd Sammons from the PGA of America Education Department.
