Lexington, KY - At Eastern Kentucky University, you can earn your bachelor’s degree in business administration at the same time you’re learning how to chip, putt and get out of bunkers.
The golf management program at EKU is the only program of its kind accredited by the Professional Golf Association (PGA) — in not only Kentucky, but the seven surrounding states as well. The program takes four and a half years to complete, but at the end, students have a degree as well as the skill set to become a full-fledged member of the PGA.
