Golf your way to continuing professional competency

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Yes, you heard me right. I just received a solicitation in the mail from Virginia Tech's Continuing and Professional Education department who is offering a course called "gravity golf", "learning about the physics and physiology of the game." It's two hours a week, from 3pm to 4pm or from 4pm to 5pm, MW or TTh, for twelve weeks. They are offering a certificate for 2.4 CEUs on completion. The price? A mere $995. That's a year and a half worth of professional development credit (at 15h/yr), and I'm sure there will be some study time down at the new Pete Dye designed course that fronts on the New River. Obviously, as a 12 week course, this will only benefit those in physical proximity to the university, but...sheesh.

I'm not sure whether to shake my head or dust off the sticks and sign up. Actually, it does me no good in CEUs, since I'm taking an advanced foundations class at Tech this fall, which will get me 45 hours of credit. Then again, catching my father's handicap might be nice, too. Besides, how often do you get to deduct golf lessons?
