Question by bigwheels1031: What is the job market like for someone who want to become a golf course superintendent?
I am currently majoring in Turfgrass Science at Penn State University and one option is a specialized major to become a golf course superintendent. What is the job market like for golf course superintendents? What is the starting pay like?

First hand, I do not know what the job market is like, but I can tell you where to look. The PGA of America’s website has a listing for careers in golf. The jobs range from Club Pros to sales associates at Golf superstores.
I do know one man who is a course superintendent. He has been at the same Club for 22 years. I have no idea what her earns, but he lives in an upscale Chicago neighborhood and has 9 children. So my guess is that he must do pretty well.
I hope this information is helpful.
