Golf Course Superintendent in Phoenixville:
"10 Years Of Misery To Get A Good Job."
Start out going to one of the major courses in the area, and be prepared to work. Working long hard hours for minimum pay is the only way to work your way up the ranks. All the good superintendent jobs are going to assistants from the big courses. The smaller courses no longer can pay a decent wage because the number of rounds have dropped. Until the economy picks up, the outlook for this occupation is bleak.
