According to the We Are Golf Coalition, the golf industry alone is directly and indirectly responsible for 2 million jobs and generates more than $61 billion in annual wages.
If you're a high school student or recent graduate, country club employment should be easy to find, particularly during the summer months when business volume is at its highest. Consider entry-level country club jobs as a pro shop attendant, caddy, locker room attendant, a position in building and grounds maintenance or at a country club restaurant.
If you have prior experience in management, business, operations or sales, you may be able to find a country club job as a general manager, clubhouse manager, or membership director. Country clubs are often looking to fill golf course maintenance and operations positions such as greenskeepers, course rangers and golf operations managers.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), 45 percent of workers in the leisure and recreation industry are under 35 years old. Thirty-seven percent have only a high school education. On-the-job training is common within entry-level country club jobs such as golf course maintenance. Entry-level supervisory positions may require completion of a two-year associate's degree or prior management experience. Bachelor's degrees are generally required for upper-level management positions, such as country club manager/general manager roles or membership director positions. Specific accreditations, such as Certified Club Manager, are available to professionals who wish to take their country club careers to a higher level.
The BLS predicts that country club jobs and jobs at golf clubs will increase by 15 percent before 2018. As of February 2012, over 1.9 million professionals were employed by the arts, entertainment and recreation industry, which includes the leisure and recreation industry and country club jobs. As the economy continues to improve, golf and country club memberships will increase and new establishments will be created. This will lead to increasing opportunities for professionals interested in entering this industry.
