The majority of Golf Professionals in the United States — just over a half — boast more than 10 years of experience in their profession. Salaries stretch from $25K to $60K per year, and the median is $37K per year. For the most part, Golf Professionals enjoy their work and report high levels of job satisfaction. Although a majority have medical coverage and two in five have dental coverage, roughly one in three claim no health benefits at all. This overview is based on answers to PayScale's salary questionnaire.

Pay by Experience Level for Golf Professional

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $30K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $41K. On average, Golf Professionals make $45K following one to two decades on the job. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $48K.
