PGA Golf Management Admissions

Thank you for your interest in PGA Golf Management at Methodist University. To ensure a smooth admissions process, please follow the PGA Golf Management admission requirements precisely (listed below).

The PGA Golf Office of Admissions encourages all prospective students to set up individual campus tours and interviews. Scheduling a tour and interviewing with the PGA Golf Management staff will allow you to tour the golf facilities, and talk with our recruiter about what you can expect if you attend Methodist University as a PGA Golf Management student. The Office is open Monday – Friday from 8 am – 5 pm and most Saturdays from 9 am – Noon. The best time to visit and get a true feel for Methodist University is during either the Fall (September – December) or Spring (January – May) semester. However, our office is open and gives tours year round. Please call us at 800.488.7110 x7278 or 910.630.7278 or click here to set up a time to visit Methodist University!
