It's pretty good if you have noise cancelling headphones. It's all mindless work, and it's pretty much the same every day if it's your first year there. Raking bunkers, cutting grass with fly-mowers, filling divets. Pay was minimum wage, but I was in high school so I cant complain.
Pros
finish work early
Cons
tough labour, early hours

Great experience to learn about greens maintenance and free golf is a definite bonus. I enjoyed the hours because your day ends early and you can get a round of golf in

Working at Bigwin for me is absolutely amazing. The whole place feels like a big family and I learned a lot about working for a golf course. The hardest part of the job is the long hours but it is definitely worth it.
Pros
Free Meals for every 4 hours
Cons
Long hours

very unique place to work, not many jobs allow you to be driven by boat to and from work. Once on the island you will enjoy the landscaping and polite approachable staff

Start at 5:30 in the morning. Work every weekday, every third weekend.

Great bosses, always got your 40 hours in per week (or more), and all the overtime you want (for the same pay).


Nice to work outside all summer when the weather is nice. Great summer job for students.
Pros
Excellent hours, solid pay, good bosses/coworkers
Cons
