Echoing the dramatic growth of the USGTF in its early years, 10 candidates attended the certification course held in Las Vegas, Nevada, this past month. Under the leadership of president and CEO Brandon Lee, the USGTF is poised to begin a new era of growth, and that was reflected in the recent course.

“The present to our golf instructors is to experience in the joy of our student’s success,” said Bill Rice, who served as the lead examiner. “Let’s all share in the joy!” Rice’s abilities were on full display, as candidate Elliot Tabron noted.

“I had a wonderful experience,” said Taberon. “I learned more in five days than I’ve learned in six years teaching. Bill Rice is a gentleman and a scholar, as well as a fantastic instructor. All around, I give this experience six stars on a five-star rating scale.”

Rice will be hosting a Master Golf Teaching Professional® certification course June 14-16. There are new requirements to earn this certification. For more more information and to register, please click on
