A job in greenkeeping can be rewarding, it also has many different areas that your expertise can be applied, once you are qualified.  Becoming a golf course greenkeeper in particular means that you can find a job in most countries if you fancy seeing other parts of the world.

There are a few routes that you can take to become a qualified greenkeeper, you can start an apprenticeship, on-site training, or start one of many full-time courses available (see more information below).
