Brandon Delgado believes in the importance of investing in yourself and your education. It was this belief that led him to enroll in Golf Academy of America. The same conviction then motivated him to complete the PGA Apprentice program, pass his Playing Ability Test (PAT) and consult a professional résumé writer before graduating.
His hard work has paid off. Today, Delgado is the Director of Golf Operations at Monarch Beach Golf Links, a five-star beachside resort in Southern California. But he has not let his success lead to complacency. The PGA professional, who is already certified in golf operations, is currently taking his second certification in general management. By 2020, he will be a certified club manager.
“Don’t be afraid to invest in your education, invest in your résumé and invest in other things that are going to help you get a better job,” Delgado says.
Delgado graduated from Golf Academy of America in San Diego in 2006. A decade after enrolling at the school, he received his first Head Golf Professional title at Carmel Mountain Ranch Country Club in San Diego. From there, he moved to Monarch Beach, where he has been leading the golf operations since January 2017.
