As the popularity of sport has grown, so too has the need for qualified coaches. Although there has been some research into the value coaches’ assign to coach education, more information is needed to fully understand how to best prepare coaches for their field of work and to further endeavour to grasp the continual needs of coaches’ post qualification. Therefore, the purpose of this project was to explore what is currently happening within the environment of the qualified PGA (Professional Golf Association) Golf professional in relation to experiences of coach education and make sense of the continued professional developmental needs (CPD) of Golf coaches, via semi-structured interviews with fully qualified PGA professionals. The objective of this study is to provide a neutral outlook on the current coaching landscape and education programs, whilst attempting to understand how coaches develop their own learning.
