    When I retired almost 12 years ago, my dream was to get a part-time job at my golf course. Well, it's finally happened!!!! A couple of weeks ago I was hired and told weather permitting I will be starting in March. The job comes with a full membership, perks, and they pay $8.00/hour. My life is about as good as it could get!!!!

    Exactly what I want, "soon". What attributes do you think helped you get hired? I'm sure there is no shortage of old geezers looking for keeping busy and saving on greens fees. Was it at a facility that you have been playing regularly?

    I have been retired for all most a year from the same job. I really miss being at the course daily. My game is not as sharp as i want,because I do not practice every day.Have fun an enjoy your new job.

    That's fantastic! I hope things work out for you. Sometimes just being on a golf course is joy in itself. Not sure what you will be doing but either way have fun!!

    Congratulations! I hope that you enjoy not only the company of other golf enthusiasts while working but also the perks that you are receiving! It's interesting that you are at a facility to which you had belonged as it is common for clubs to exclude members from their employment ranks. Perhaps you gave up your prior membership to take the position (and receive a membership?).

    I have not officially retired yet, though haven't been working the last couple years since we moved to Maryland due to a great job opportunity for my wife. Now over 60, I am not ready to start a new career. So, instead I have been playing a lot of golf (over 350 rounds since we got here) and deciding what kind of job I want next. Since Titleist isn't hunting me down to take over representing the mid-Atlantic region (which would be MY dreamjob), I am holding out until the right position comes along at one of the top golf clubs in my area for a part-time pro shop helper, starter or ranger. I am a full-time member at a great club already with unlimited play and cart fees all covered, so I want the job somewhere else so I can play free there too! And I'm gonna negotiate hard on salary. I want at least $8.50/hr. I don't know what you were thinking settling for $8.00! ;-)

    Hanging around the golf course, making some money, and playing all the golf you can fit in, sounds like the perfect plan to me! I'll be signing up for that plan as soon as I can!.....

    Good for you. I am happy that it worked out. I have similar thoughts. Just want to make sure course I work is private which will make it that much sweeter..

    Congratulations, Stephen. Sounds like you found your niche in life. I went to work for a course shortly after I retired as a marshal and a starter. Worked out ok for a couple of years for me. I got green fees, cart, but no pay. You deal sounds awesome.
