No, this isn’t about becoming a professional golf hustler or using the golf course as a site for conning business tycoons. If you love the game of golf and are trying to decide on a career or need a career change from your boring 9 to 5 job , there are ways to turn golf into a paying job.
One of the best ways to do this is to enroll in a golf career college . These institutions offer structured, certified courses in how to play and teach golf as well as teaching you about golf course management, grounds maintenance, and hospitality. Many programs offer an accredited degree in professional golf management.
Some of the careers available to graduates include course director, club manager, and tournament director. Other graduates find themselves giving golf lessons, coaching golf, or playing professionally in tour all over the country and the rest of the world. Still other golf careers involve marketing, sales, and management of equipment manufacturers, and working in journalism or television covering professional and amateur golf leagues.
