Pay Rise for Golf Club Staff Recommended

A pay rise of 5% has been recommended for course managers/head greenkeepers, and deputy and assistant greenkeepers in the United Kingdom.

London, England: The Committee for Golf Club Salaries (CGCS) in the United Kingdom has recommended an increase in salaries of 5% for golf club staff.

The CGCS is made up of representatives from the key industry bodies in golf across the UK and meets annually to make recommendations for pay and conditions for greenkeepers and golf club managers.

The committee has created four salary calculators, one for club managers and three for roles in greenkeeping: course manager/head greenkeeper, deputy and assistant.

The calculators are available at

After a difficult 2021 that featured rising inflation and pressure on golf club staff to deliver the sport to record numbers of players, the CGCS has recommended an increase in salaries of 5%.

This increase will be applied to the CGCS calculators this month.

The committee also emphasised that clubs must give serious consideration to the health and well-being of their staff as problems with mental health in particular are becoming worryingly prevalent.

The CGCS committee comprises representatives of The Professional Golfers’ Association of Great Britain & Ireland, England Golf, the Golf Club Managers’ Association and the British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association.
