At the PGA of Belgium we believe in longlife learning.
“The moment you stop striving to become better, you also stop being good”
PGA Coaches and Professionals are required to update their knowledge in order to optimise their service to their clients. The PGA of Belgium actively promotes this vision by organising a variety of seminars through the year.
Its Classification System allows for a fair assessment of ones involvement through the year in different areas. At the end of January of each year, an updated list is published and send to the Clubs for their consideration.
More and more Clubs use the Classification List in search for a new Coach or Professional.

>>> 2021 Classification List (Numeric)
Your professional is not listed? Then he/she may not be qualified as Coach/Professional or he/she is not a member...
