By Cole Golden, WGTF Master Golf Teaching Professional There are many benefits of belonging to the USGTF and WGTF. Just a few of the top benefits that come to my mind are the Golf Teaching Pro magazine, regional tournaments, the U.S. and World Golf Teachers Cups, and personal discounts from club manufacturers. However, my favorite is our member’s forum. USGTFMembers.com is a wonderful forum for our members to post about many different topics. Whether you are needing an instructor, asking for ideas about a problem with a student, or getting excited about an upcoming USGTF event, the forum has it all. Having met members from all over the world through our different venues, it is also a great way to keep in touch with members who are far away. This means of reconnecting assists with communication about upcoming events, and builds camaraderie from the beginning. Receiving feedback, in addition to learning about different perspectives, global golf topics and issues, really illustrates the universality of the organization. All this wonderful forum needs is YOU! The more you take advantage of this tool, the better it will be. It’s an opportunity to get involved within the USGTF. If you want to ask Mark Harman or myself a question about one of our tournaments, you can. If you would like to ask the group about a drill to help a student, you can. If you would like to look to hire some instructors for a camp, you can. The benefits are endless! Log on today and start enjoying one of the best perks of our membership.
