Running a golf course is no joke. Just ask any chairman of a local club. Ask the board of directors of any fine golfing estate around the country. And of course, golf is all about serious money. Just ask any member of any pro golf circuit from around the world, particularly in the USA. Heck, even the lowest ranking player on circuit is set to make a good sack of money per annum almost equivalent to what any middle ranking executive should be making today.
Professional golf course consultants are, of course, executives in their own right. They are elite members of society, certainly doing a good tour of duty for any local community that requests their assistance. Whether it’s a middle American city or a one-horse town, no such place is complete without at least having nine holes of golf greens to negotiate. If not that, a driving range, or a mini golf course then.
All of which a professional golfing consultant could arrange. The job classification of this pro consultant can be fairly broad because the tasks that he will be requested to see to will be various. With or without a functioning golf course, each and every community has different needs.
Note this if you are still struggling to run your club. Don’t be responsible for running your club into the ground. Be responsible and take ownership of the reality of professional golf course consulting work.
It can be hard work, to be sure, particularly if you are working with stubborn customers. Even club members can be demanding. For instance, if you’ve got no prize money set up or no clubhouse, with bar attached to it, what are you going to do when someone out there hits a hole in one?
