Five-Level Programme

Golfer imageOur golf training is broken down into five levels.  Each member is tested at each level and must have a certificated pass from an OCF coach in order to progress.  On completion of the this programme, members will have the skills, knowledge and confidence to find long-term employment within the golf industry.


LEVEL 1 - Introduction to golf – Members are introduced to the basic techniques of golf

LEVEL 2 - Etiquette and rules – Members are introduced to golfing etiquette and the rules of golf whilst receiving more in-depth technical coaching

LEVEL 3 - Development – Members’ knowledge and skills are enhanced through continued coaching and practice

LEVEL 4 - Formal handicap – Having developed an understanding of the fundamental skills, rules and traditions of the game, members can now apply for an official golf handicap and participate in a select number of fundraising events

LEVEL 5 - Advanced – Advanced members will have demonstrated that they are able to conduct themselves in a disciplined manner and with courtesy and sportsmanship on the golf course at all times – Level 5 members are likely to have an official golf handicap of 18 or better.


Whilst many careers in the golf industry require some knowledge of the game, there are roles where this is not necessary.  For those individuals who are not interested in learning about the game of golf, and simply want a career or work experience within the industry, OCF will strive to secure a successful outcome.
