 From the Founder's desk

We hosted our spring Open Day last Saturday and were delighted to receive the biggest turnout of families for many years. The resurgence in golf in the last 18 months has definitely boosted interest in our full-time programmes. Strong recruitment for our 2022 PGA Diploma programme reflects this, as more youngsters are seeing the potential for an international career in the business of golf. We are also starting to see an increase in applications from international students again, now that worldwide travel restrictions are being lifted. If you are keen to join us, be sure to get your application in soon before the limited spaces fill up.

These players qualified by playing round-robin matches in their relevant divisions and then finishing in the top 4. They will now compete in the elimination section against their fellow golfers from the other divisions, to see who will be the newly crowned BSI Matchplay Champion 2021 on 24 November. Good luck to the final 16 and we wait in anticipation to see who the Elite 8 will be!

 Student Spotlight

A few of our students will shortly be finishing their current programmes with us. BSI has been an integral part of their lives over the past few years and in the next few newsletters we will be interviewing these upcoming graduates about their time here at BSI. We start this week with two gentlemen who are completing their PGA Diploma in December. Meet Armand Muller and Keegan Dix.

“These three years at BSI taught me strength, flexibility, confidence and to stay focused. I’ve learned a lot of discipline and to try again with lots of practice. The environment was positive, and BSI taught me never to quit.  My confidence has definitely grown stronger.

With my coaches' help I have kept on trying, practising and improving my game. It was nice to be part of the Academy. I built a strong bond with a few students and get along with them all. The teachers, golf coaches and my mental coach have always been helpful and supportive.

I will find a job after my course and do the necessary requirements for me to qualify as a PGA Accredited Professional. I would recommend this Academy to anyone who wants to do the course.”
