Head Golf Professional Salary

With slightly less than three-fifths of Head Golf Professionals in the United States reporting more than 10 years of experience in the field, this area is heavily weighted toward experienced professionals. Pay ranges from $29K to $82K per year and averages out to $45K annually. Unfortunately, some people in this line of work are without benefits — over a third lack coverage. On the flip side, more than half have medical insurance and just over two-fifths receive dental plans. For the most part, Head Golf Professionals enjoy their work and report high levels of job satisfaction. This report is based on answers to PayScale's salary questionnaire.

Pay by Experience Level for Head Golf Professional

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


For Head Golf Professionals, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Folks with fewer than five years of experience take home $37K on average, and those who have worked for five to 10 years see a bigger median salary of $42K. Head Golf Professionals with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $50K. People who have worked for more than 20 years report a median income of $53K, which is barely higher than the median for folks with 10 to 20 years of experience.
