    What do you do in the golf business? I worked in the industry for 7 years before leaving to start my own business.

    I am a PGA professional at Spokane Country Club. Winter has caused me to be unemployed at present, which is not terribly fun, but necessary.

    The winter season can be a little rough, although most courses keep their pro's on staff throughout the winter. I was a PGA professional for 5 years and a Director of golf for 2. It's a very fun career and often times very rewarding when working with youth golfers. I hope you get compensated and appreciated for all of the long hours that are required of a professional. As much as I love the game the industry didn't provide the financial rewards that I was seeking. Now I enjoy playing in Saturday games for a little extra gun money. I've found it's much easier to strike up a money game when you don't have to announce that you're a PGA pro.

    An old Muzzle Loader friend of mine from North Carolina, was asked by a guy he worked with if he ever played golf. Charley replied, "Heck no, I'd rather shoot my balls than hit 'em with a stick."

    Shooter, A lot of what you mention is in my mind too. Tough digs for what you get paid. While I am at a very nice facility, with great people, the checks are a little lean. Currently looking for a job in IT that pays better, and uses my skills in that area a little more effectively.
