Course summary

About the course

The course is delivered at University Centre Myerscough and awarded by the University of Central Lancashire. The course offers a fast-track route to achieving an Honours Degree, for students holding a golf-related Foundation Degree or Higher National Diploma. The course provides an excellent coaching and performance-based golf programme, which is designed to equip students with an understanding of the science and practice of golf coaching and performance. There are two main areas within golf coaching - one at community/club level and the other at an elite level. The two main areas of performance are elite level based: firstly, with a focus on conditioning – both the mental and physical aspects, and secondly, the scientific considerations within sports performance e.g. nutrition, anatomy & physiology and biomechanics.

To assist in the delivery of the modules and the development of students' golf skills the College has a number of fantastic facilities. These include: a 9 hole golf course, a driving range, video analysis equipment, biomechanics RS Footscan, Science & Motion putting lab, Flightscope, Trackman, K-Vest, Indoor Golf Academy, Sports Centre and Fitness Suite, putting and chipping areas, and golf simulators (including GC2).

The course is designed twofold: firstly, to enable students to have the skills and knowledge to coach at elite levels or within a community based context. Secondly, for students to deliver performance based elements of golf at an elite level. Students will have the opportunity to develop their coaching and performance based skills working with the College's Elite Golf Squads and Golf Academy members.

It should be noted that to succeed on this course it is not a pre requisite to be a low handicap golfer. However, a strong interest in both golf coaching and performance, with a desire to improve others and your own game is important. This will be assessed as part of the application process.

Learning Environment:

Students will be exposed to a variety of learning environments including lectures, seminars, workshops and practical sessions. They will have access to up to date ICT, analysis and sports science equipment.

Students are expected to undertake extensive independent study and research to support lectures, seminars and assessments. Group work and group presentations form an important part of the course. Students will have access to specialist IT hardware and software, an on-line learning environment and reference facility.

Assessment:

Students will face a variety of assessments including essays, reports, multimedia presentations, mini projects practical coaching sessions, coaching review, and reports, performance profile, oral defence, case studies, portfolios and posters.

Progression

On successful completion of the course, students may apply for post-graduate studies (e.g. MA, MPhil, PhD) and can obtain advice and guidance from both Myerscough and University staff.

Careers

What careers can you follow?

The course aims to provide a programme of golf coaching and performance education which will enable degree holders to analyse key academic themes in the subject area and critically evaluate the wide range of coaching issues and practices within different sectors of the Golf Industry, which will therefore prepare them for a successful career in the UK or overseas. The course promotes an ethos of self-development and reflection throughout the curriculum in order to foster that greater personal awareness and confidence necessary to manage others.
