We are excited to announce the launch of our nationwide GolfRSA Training Program in July.
The program, supported by funding from the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture, will be powered by The Club Management Association of Southern Africa (CMASA).
The Department of Sports, Arts and Culture (DSAC) had granted us funding of R900 000 to spend on the GolfRSA Training Program over the next three years and we are grateful to DSAC for supporting our desire to invest in employees in the golf industry at all levels across South Africa.
Through upskilling, we aim to offer employees the opportunity to develop new abilities and we are delighted to partner with CMASA, who will drive this initiative on behalf of GolfRSA.

Central Gauteng Golf Union
Central Gauteng Golf Union is the governing body of amateur golf in the Central Gauteng area. Our role is to look after the interests of our 31 clubs and over 19 000 golfers in our region. One of the ways we aim to do this is through educational support for our clubs. For this reason we have partnered with CMASA to offer our clubs educational sessions as well as tailor-made educational packages for our smaller clubs, at no cost to the club. We believe that by adding value to our clubs, they can then add value to our golfers – stronger clubs, stronger game.
