What to expect?

The Careers in Golf networking event was built with college student’s interest in mind:

  • Free food - Food and soft drinks will be provided
  • Casual dress code - Golf attire. Don’t embarrass yourself and wear a suit and tie.
  • Hiring managers on-site – If you want to really impress someone from a large golf organization, why not impress the hiring manager!

Be sure to check out the Nextgengolf job board where we post lots of industry positions available for other golf companies. We are excited to be hosting this annual event in conjunction with NCCGA Nationals and bring together the top employers in golf with the top student golfer recruiting talent.
