KAPALUA – The Kapalua Golf Academy, voted #1 Golf Academy in Hawaii (Golf Digest, 2017), announced that Assistant Professionals Andy Wituszynski and Chris Black received their Professional Golfers Association of America (PGA) Class A membership last month.

This is a three-stage, three-level program that typically takes a minimum of three years to complete. Levels include a playing ability test, bookwork, case studies and seminars at the PGA headquarters in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

The PGA credential shows mastership in the golf industry fields, including teaching, club fitting, agronomy, maintenance, merchandising, food and beverage, career and player development, tournament operations and the rules of golf.

Director of Instruction Ben Hongo, PGA, said, “Andy and Chris are an instrumental part of the team at the Kapalua Golf Academy. This is a rigorous process and career commitment, and having earned these credentials will not only enhance our operations but their golf careers.”

Wituszynski has been at the Kapalua Golf Academy for eight years, and Black has been with Kapalua Golf for over ten years. The Kapalua Golf Academy proudly reports over six PGA members instruct on a daily basis.
