The Proponent Group is an active community of accomplished teachers from around the globe who buy into a vision of collaboration, camaraderie and innovation. The Proponent Group member network includes more than half of the GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teachers, more than 150 section Teachers of the Year, more than a dozen National Teachers of the Year and the owners and operators of more than 50 golf academies.
The Proponent Group staff and consultants combine for 75-plus years of golf industry experience - most of it spent working closely with golf professionals. They consult one-on-one with members to address issues involving their facilities, contract negotiation and important career moves. When a member needs a sounding board for a new business idea, they listen and offer guidance. They pick up the phone when a member calls, ready with advice, background data and ideas about further resources to tap.
To make sound decisions and build your business, you need relevant, cutting-edge data presented in a user-friendly format. Proponent Group members are privy to the information that instructors simply can’t get anywhere else. It’s delivered to them on their member-only website and at their live events and annual summit. More than 100 hours of presentations from the brightest minds in golf instruction and golf marketing are accessible 24/7. They also have easy access to unique instruction-business templates and marketing guides geared toward elevating business and teaching skills.
