 From the Founder’s Desk

It’s always exciting to start a new academy year; welcoming new students to our family and see the returning students fresh and ready for another year of growth and development. Our full-time Junior Academy students have started back this week, and are busy with a few days of induction and evaluation before our first medal tournament on Friday. Our college programmes commence towards the end of January, so there’s still time to take one of the few remaining spots in our PGA Diploma intake, or sign up for our one-year Greenkeeping or Sports Management courses.

Welcome back to all our Junior Academy students, and a warm BSI family welcome to our new students joining us in 2022.

  Loic's experience at BSI
 Alumni Spotlight

“I loved the overall experience. I made a lot of friends, and made contacts in the golf industry in South Africa. The hours of intense training with my coach, as well as physical and psychology sessions to prepare for a playing career, the PGA Diploma course taught me everything and gave me a career in the golf industry. The academy gave me the tools to be the best I can be at my job. It gave me a good work ethic and the knowledge to be respected by clients and co-workers. Join BSI for an experience you'll never forget!"
