Hol­land Col­lege to of­fer golf and pho­tog­ra­phy pro­grams in Septem­ber

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

After pulling the plug last year on golf and pho­tog­ra­phy pro­grams, Hol­land Col­lege is set to of­fer light­ened op­tions in both of these fields in Septem­ber.

In March 2018, the col­lege an­nounced it was sus­pend­ing its golf club man­age­ment pro­gram and its pho­tog­ra­phy and dig­i­tal imag­ing pro­gram due to low en­rol­ment.

Both were two-year pro­grams. Hol­land Col­lege will be of­fer­ing a one-year golf op­er­a­tions pro­gram start­ing in Septem­ber. The pro­gram em­pha­sizes the de­vel­op­ment of a broad range of skills tai­lored to de­mands in the golf in­dus­try. Stu­dents will learn how to help run a fa­cil­ity smoothly from en­sur­ing the grounds are kept prop­erly and the pro shop is well stocked.

Pro­gram­ming will also cover host­ing tour­na­ments and club events. Through ex­pe­ri­en­tial course­work, stu­dents will learn how to im­prove their golf game and how to help oth­ers im­prove their game. Grad­u­ates can move into the sec­ond year of the sports and leisure man­age­ment pro­gram.

A one-year pho­tog­ra­phy and videography pro­gram will also start in Septem­ber, pro­vid­ing a foun­da­tion in dig­i­tal imag­ing and videography.
