8 Places to Find Golf Employment

Aug 17, 2007
The popularity of golf has really taken off in recent years. To accommodate the many people who play, take lessons, watch, or read about the sport, golf employment has become much more readily available, in a variety of interesting businesses.

Golf courses: There are many more golf courses in operation today than there was twenty years ago, and every one of them offers dozens of golf employment opportunities. In order to run smoothly, golf courses need groundskeepers to care for the turf, operators and technicians for the equipment needed on a golf course, instructors to provide training for the golf course's members, and managers to make sure everything runs smoothly. Additionally, many golf courses have clubhouses and golf stores, both of which require sufficient staff in order to provide members with their conveniences.

Golf resorts: Golfing vacations are becoming more and more popular, as the explosion of golf resorts has indicated. A golf resort requires all of the same staff as a golf course does, except that a golf resort is often bigger and therefore requires more employees. Additionally, a golf resort needs a larger establishment to house their guests, and with a bigger building and more services comes a larger staff: housekeepers, front desk employees, and an expanded kitchen staff all contribute to the success of a golf resort.

Golf schools: As golf becomes more and more popular, more schools are opening every day to teach the sport. These schools are a wonderful source of golf employment for those who would rather teach the sport as the next best thing to playing it themselves.

Golf stores: There are a variety of retail businesses that sell golf equipment, clothing and accessories. Some stores, such as those small stores located in golf course clubhouses, may sell only products that relate to golf. Other stores, such as large sports stores, sell equipment and clothing for a variety of different sports, golf included. Both types of stores offer excellent opportunities for golf employment, as they both have a need for sales associates who know about golf well enough to give their customers the best service possible.

Community centers: Believe it or not, your neighborhood community center may be able to provide you with golf employment. Community centers frequently offer residents fun, seasonal programs, such as classes on art, dance, and golf. Even if your community center doesn't already offer a golf program, you may be able to get a job just by suggesting one.

Junior high or high schools: Extracurricular activities are an important part of most junior high and high schools. Whether you are a teacher or just a golf enthusiast living in the area, you may be able to score a part time job by suggesting golf lessons or a golf club as an after school activity.

Golf publications: Most people wouldn't think of it, but golf publications offer another source of golf employment. There are at least a half-dozen golf magazines on the shelves of any well-stocked bookstore, and every one of them needs writers, editors, and photographers who know all about golf.

On your own: Golf is an industry that leaves plenty of room for entrepreneurs. As an experienced golfer, you can offer private golf lessons, meeting your clients wherever they enjoy golfing the most. You can also translate your knowledge and experience into written form by publishing biographies about famous golfers, travel guides that discuss the pros and cons various golf resorts around the world, or even how-to manuals for golf enthusiasts who want to learn more about the sport.

As you can see, there are many places of employment for golf enthusiasts. The golf industry is so popular that anyone with the right education and experience will never have to worry about having reliable golf employment.
