Local people with connections within the industry are also great sources of knowledge as well.  Talk to the head pro at the local city course or a local private course.  These people have good connections and can probably point out which courses have really recognized and successful head pros.  Most people in a specific field know who the leaders are because of their influence on the industry.  So, local head pros are sure to have their finger on the pulse of the head pro arena.
