How to Work in a Golf Pro Shop


Working in a golf pro shop may seem like a relaxing job. However, it can be quite busy and intense. One must be able to get people out on the golf course, sell them golf clothes and equipment, help them schedule lessons and offer a sympathetic ear when it comes to problems with their game.

  • Schedule players for tee times on the course or courses. Your golf course may be a golf complex with two or more courses. You have to take scheduling requests from foursomes and relay this information to the course starter(s). This includes late changes that may result from last-second cancellations.

  • Help golfers with purchases of golf clothing at the pro shop. While golf clothing at the pro shop is usually notoriously high-priced, there are some items that may not be readily available elsewhere. Let golfers know that you have the type of clothing and items they need in one handy location.

  • Keep the shelves stocked with golf balls, golf tees, specialty clubs and other items that golfers may need for their rounds. This includes golf umbrellas, golf shoes, spike wrenches and ball markers.

  • Schedule golf lessons with the golf pro. You will be the first one from the course to see the golfer after her round is over. Make conversation and see how the player's game is going. If it's not going so well, suggest a lesson and explain why it could help. Both the golfer and the pro will thank you later.
