Welcome to Episode 9 – This is a conversation with Ethan Fisher of Golf House Kentucky on his experience in the PGA Management Program at Eastern Kentucky University.
We discuss this academic program, one specifically designed to prepare students for a career in golf, but why it doesn’t restrict a candidate to jobs only in the golf field. We also discuss, among other topics, what he is observing in the golf business right now, how golf media keeps evolving, and his wish list of golf getaways if we had the time, means, and inclination.
It was a fun conversation that I think you’ll enjoy from someone from the unique perspective of a statewide golf association.
