The PGA Baobab course is Africa's only PGA-accredited course. Founded in 1901, the PGA is the world's first golf professional members' organisation representing over 7,500 golf professionals working in over 60 countries worldwide. It has been at the heart of the game since early British professionals, led by the Great Triumvirate of JH Taylor, Harry Vardon and James Braid, formed an organisation to protect the professionals' interests and promote the game of golf.
A prestigious accolade and brand, the PGA's stamp of approval is instantly recognised by golfers across the globe. All PGA-accredited facilities are of world-class standard and each benefit from the renowned association with the international sporting brand.
The PGA has a range of industry-leading education courses available to aspiring golf professionals and people with key roles in the golfing industry. Vipingo Ridge is currently working with the PGA to create a bespoke education programme for Vipingo Ridge's staff to improve their knowledge and the overall quality of the local service and product.
The future vision for the Academy here is one that will provide people from local communities with a career in golf, from positions as caddies and greenkeepers to golf administrators, in order to improve their quality of life.
