The PGFA can show you how to take an area as small as 6"x 6" and turn it into a profitable space! Golfers are accustomed to working with their teaching professionals on a 1:1 ratio or in teaching clinics with a 1:3 ratio or slightly higher. As you can see below, our instructors are reporting income as high as $72 per hour. The 1:1 ratio minimum is determined by adding 20% to your normal one-to-one charges because this is a sports-specific and unique program. See example below:
Market Income (some markets are higher):
(Average training hour: $60 + 20%)
$72 per session for a 1:1 ratio (instructor/client)
Let's say you teach 20 sessions per week. Based on the market figures, that's an income of $1,440 per week. In your first year you could potentially add $74,880 to your bottom line!
