THIS is my golf dream job! Check this out.
YourGolfTravel, which is well known for arranging the ultimate golf holidays, has recently announced the Ultimate Job in Golf.
According to their website, YGT is “looking to liberate a weekend golfer who is sick and tired of the rat race and give them the ultimate job in golf, spending a year travelling the world to sample and review some of the globe’s most desirable golf destinations.”
Wow! Could I learn to love that job!
Okay…what’s the catch? This sounds too good to be true.
Well, apparently none…
So make the short list, you need to:
1. Be “redundant” – haha…who isn’t these days?
2. Have a handicap less than 14 – time to get out and practice practice practice!
3. Send in a 500-1000 word article about your best golf holiday and share why you are the best candidate for the job – Oh, I have a ton of stuff for that – my problem will be keeping it under 1000 words LOL!
Once they sort through the hundreds of thousands of applications (I sure don’t envy HR’s job on this one!), the top 18 candidates will play an 18 hole scratch tournament to find out who is the winner of the ultimate dream job.
Amazing! I can’t imagine a more perfect way to spend the next year – travelling the world, playing and writing about golf. Unfortunately, my handicap is a tad higher than 14, but my writing is a 10 handicap. Why aren’t they measurting that? I write waaaay better than I play.
Oh well, whoever wins, here’s an open invitation to be your caddie. Just pay my expenses and I’m there. I’ll walk, write and publish stories about every course and resort you visit. All you need to do is stay and play. What could be better than that.
