Depending on the position, greenskeepers may have extra duties such as maintaining other parts of the facility (e.g., bathrooms). When working on a golf course, the greenskeeper must repair damage from tees, balls, and foot traffic. There may also be periodic renovation activities that involve planting various items, removing trees, and other tasks related to improving the landscape.
There are entry-level greenskeeper positions available, as well as positions requiring experience. Full-time and part-time jobs are available. Some greenskeepers may be in charge of design for the area under their supervision, which therefore requires skills related to aesthetic design and creativity. Since almost all of this job involves being outdoors, greenskeepers should be able to work in a variety of weather conditions. Attention to detail is important in this job to ensure that the greens are kept in a prime condition. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
