Golf degree students make a big impression in Florida
March 09, 2016

Golf degree students interact with bigwigs at Nicklaus Golf in Florida.

Bobby Root, Manager of Technical Applications at the Jack Nicklaus Group of Companies, meets with Georgian Golf Management degree students in Florida.

Executives at the Jack Nicklaus Group of Companies were impressed with the Honours Bachelor of Business Administration (Golf Management) students they met during their Study Week trip to Florida. Here’s what was said in a Jack Nicklaus Instagram post:

“Happy to hear the future of the golf business is in such capable hands. Thanks to Georgian College’s Bachelor of Business in Golf Management program in Canada for coming to visit the Nicklaus Companies all the way in North Palm Beach!”

The annual trip is a world-class experience for these students and one in which very few, if any, other golf students in the world get to experience.

The pictures below show more of the sights the students got to visit on this trip, including the Nicklaus Group of Companies, Arnold Palmer’s Bay Hill, the Golf Channel, Core Golf Education, Disney Golf and the Annika Sorenstam Academy. Not only do the students get to check out these amazing properties, but they are also treated like VIPs by the property superintendents, VPs, marketing execs, directors, architects, etc.
