Sports turf professionals are in high demand, both here and overseas, for the management and maintenance of golf courses, cricket wickets, sports fields and artificial turf among others.

This is the only full-time Sports Turf programme on offer in New Zealand!  

It provides an even balance of theoretical and practical studies and you will benefit from our close proximity to world-class sports venues. With motivation and hard work, you will have the opportunity to build important relationships, gain further hands-on experience and participate in a skill development placement at a top sporting venue in New Zealand.

Upon successful completion, you will graduate with a New Zealand Certificate in Horticulture Services (Level 4) (Sports Turf). 

Please note: Our Pukekohe Golf Club programme is delivered through the Future Skills Academy as a joint venture between Otago Polytechnic and the provider.
