A Little-Known Career on the Golf Course
By Marty Nemko
Where should that new bunker go? How should we schedule the groundskeepers? What's the best way to keep the greens perfect? To answer those questions, every golf course has a superintendent. This is a cool career that doesn't require a bachelor's degree: a two-year degree in turfgrass management will do. Be sure, though, to spend at least one summer as a groundskeeper. Become a golf course superintendent and you can have a life on the links even if you're a duffer.What can you do today?
