Over half of the country is literally knee deep in snow and bitterly cold temperatures since after all, it is winter, and many people are busily gearing up for football’s final game: The Super Bowl.

So it’s no surprise that most people can’t fathom the idea about trading in their shovels for golf clubs just yet.

However, this is the time when the golf industry is preparing for the upcoming season and ready to begin hiring new employees.

PGA of America’s 13th Annual Jobs in Golf Month will coincide with the 61st PGA Merchandise Show promoting golf employment opportunities.

“Many people think of golf as their dream job, which explains why 2 million people point to the industry as their place of employment,” said PGA President Ted Bishop. “With $55 billion in annual wages generated, many people wonder how they, too, can work in golf.”

Golf has changed the way people do business, as many colleagues, contacts and clients have formed business relationships and closed deals by moving meetings from the dreary workplace to the attractive qualities the golf course has to offer.

Golf is a $68 billion dollar industry, and many people wonder how they can become a part of such a prestigious venue.

PGA Employment Services helps individuals secure work in the golf industry through a strategically matching system that benefits both employers and employees. Open positions that need to be filled for the upcoming season usually include PGA head professionals, general managers, equipment representatives, sales, chefs and wait staff.

Interested candidates eager to break into the golf industry will need to visit the website for a list of positions that need to be filled.
