How To Become A Greenskeeper
Greenskeepers are responsible for the overall care and maintenance of golf courses and country clubs. They manage the greens and landscaping and maintain tee markers, flags, ball washers, benches, canopies and other equipment located on the course. Greenskeepers typically need at least a high school diploma, but many complete formal education in horticulture, landscaping, or other related field. Prospective greenskeepers often complete courses in horticulture, small engine repair, arboriculture, landscape design, and business. Employment of greenskeepers is expected to grow faster than average for all professions, increasing 18% from 2008 to 2018. The growing population and increased demand for golf courses will drive job growth.
