I picked up an application and I want to work there. It pays $8.00/hr and it would be a weekend job because I have school. There are awesome benefits, like 30% off all iron sets, %50 off apparel, and $10 off of golf balls. I was thinking I would spend my first pay check on some Adidas Tour 360 III's. I think this would be a good gig for me since I'm 16.

Go for it!! If I was your age I do it in a second, get to learn about the game, good deals on golf swag, and probably get to hit some balls/putts on slow days.

30% off iron sets? New or pre-owned clubs? And 50% off apparel is nice. Not too bad.

Naw, I would never abuse that. I'm already cool with the manager there. We had a long drive contest on the Launch Monitor. He won by 8 yars he hit it 353, I hit it 345. I wouldn't want to lose his respect.

Even though the US $ is worth more, I find it funny how $7-8/hr is good for you guys. Good luck, but don't get your hopes too high.

That sounds like jealousy! We all know you would work in a golf store in a sec.

Ha it may be, only because it is impossible to get one here

What's wrong with that? That's good money for a kid

Nothing.. It is good money for the US dollar, it just confuses me why minimum wage in some places in the US is lower.

Go for it.

My son has worked on and off at Golf Galaxy when he has had a need for money and/or when he has needed to replace his equipment. It's a great job to supplement school. Other benefits are working with a teaching pro, learning the ins and out of customer service - learning to sell, learning how to maintain and repair equipment... all in an environment of golf! What's not to like about that. Retail is a great way to learn business and can lead to other, more profitable, adventures.

Not only do the discounts apply for employees but family can take advantage of the benefits too. Not to shabby for the Dad's out there too.

I would love to work in the golf industry. I am a project engineer in the construction industry and have been trying to figure out how I could fuse the two together.

Here's one idea how:

Get your company associated with AGC or ABC. Sign up or volunteer to work on one of their golf committees that organizes golf tournaments. You'll make contacts galore. (they may call it a social or fundraising committee)

Isn't there another thread where someone asks if these machines are accurate? Here's your answer!

    • In OK, schools are not legally allowed to require masks, even for those who are too young to get vaccinated.  😞 I'm glad to hear that the vaccine can make keys stick to your head.  Maybe it will work on the five simple keys from a while back?  
    • And almost as if Florida is trying to double down on it, -->   Being a resident of SW Missouri, I guess I shouldn't throw stones.  It's almost like they're having a competition, except they've forgotten that LSW.
    • Day 1: Starting over because I keep forgetting to post. More chipping/pitching COVID-19 drills with new wedges. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron. 
    • My usual dbl bogie- bogie- bogie start till the back let me swing. Settled in and was 4 over at the turn after an additional bogie nullified by a bird.  Was even on the back till we hit a log jam on the tee of 15. lost concentration and bogied in. 80.  I would like to add, I wasn't having a particularly  good ball striking day. I could have easily shot a lot worse, but the forgiveness of the T300s and a good day with the flat stick kept me out of the mid 80s.  
    • Day 157.  I spent ten minutes hitting balls with my 6-iron indoors.  I'll be playing tomorrow, and I would have liked to get out to practice chipping and putting on a real green, but it wasn't in the cards for today's plans.  I am glad I at least got some practice in, though.  Hmm... I see Boogie did Superspeed.  I'm not sure why I put mine away a few months ago, but I need to get them back out and get back to it.
